A silent tear rolls down my cheek
As I try to say goodbye
I cannot breathe, I cannot speak
I cannot look him in the eye

My lips won't move
My brain seems broken
This simple word
Cannot be spoken

It has to be done
Before I leave
But my words have been stolen
By a master thief

I don't know how to tell him
I don't know what to do
I don't know how to say it
But I simply have to

It's not a goodbye
See you tomorrow
It's a goodbye
Hold me in your sorrow

It's not a goodbye
An LOL, TTFN
It's a goodbye
I will never see you again

And with my last breaths
I waste them not
I take the time
And kiss him a lot

I savor the moment
To remember it well
As I feel myself moving
Further from Hell

Upon my last seconds
As my eyes begin to close
I tremble with affliction
From my head to my toes

I whisper five words
As I fade away
The words that I speak of
I had to say

And since I knew
Without him I would die
I told him
"I love you
and
goodbye."

This poem is just about the hardships of saying goodbye to someone you truly love, whether its from death, or a breakup/divorce... I wrote this poem for fun, not for school or a class assignment.

Yeah... I lost both my Grampas in the same year. One of them died on my birthday. 

Its hard but we're surviving.
