Last Goodbye

goodbyes are painful

when you know there won’t be

another hello,

but the moment I watched you leave,

I didn’t know,

it would be the last.

the last time I see your smile,

the last time I feel your touch,

the last time I say goodbye.

and if only I knew in that moment,

that it was, I would run up

and hug you as if nobody was watching.

I would look at your face

as if I were painting

a portrait with my eyes,

And I’d break my heart

a million times

if it meant I can see you one last time.
