Goodbyes

Goodbyes are a funny thing you see
Because you say “good”
When all you want to do is cry
And you say “bye”
When you don’t want to let go
So in the end you don’t mean it

But you’re leaving
And I don’t know what I’ll say
Because you’ll be gone forever
Without even realizing it
You won’t belong to our little corner of the world
You’ll belong to everyone
And Everyone is lucky

I don’t know what I’ll do from now until you leave
I know I will never go a day without thinking about it
Because you mean a lot
To everyone here

I may do stupid things when you’re gone
Because you can’t be my fountain of wisdom
And the whole “they’ll always be in be in your heart” won’t work
I’ll need you; I’ll have to learn to stand on my own two feet
But I’ll have you to thank for that

So goodbye but not good riddance
You’ll always have people here who need your help
And I know you’ll visit
But
People Always Leave
