My Day to Say Goodbye

January 21, 2009
By Danielle Allen, Mount Angel, OR

I didn't mean to make you cry
I didn't want you to be sad

But it was just my time
I had to say goodbye

Wasn’t by choice
But it was my turn

They picked me
My day to "shine"

Even though this wasn't a glorious thing
It was remembered

So don't waste your tears
Don’t be sad

It was going to happen some day
That day jus happened to be today

We all thought it would be later
Not so soon, not today

But don't was time morning
Be happy that I had life
Not that my life was taken

Don’t be mad at who took me away
Be glad they didn't take it sooner
