I Never Got to Say Goodbye
Thoughts of you pass my mind,
Not just once, but all the time.
When you left, I couldn't understand,
I hated that I could never see you again.
Each night I cried myself to sleep.
I would think of you and begin to weep.
I cried for you, day by day,
Your soul floating miles away.
Into the stars, I suppose.
Far enough that no one knows.
I know a part of you is out there, your spirit in the trees.
Because I sometimes feel the presence of you, somewhere in the breeze.
You are in the grass, the ocean, the earth as a whole,
Your spirit more powerful than I can control.
Well, wherever you truly are, I hope you're content.
For I know that you have had a life well spent.
I trained you when you were young.
I raised you when your life just begun.
You were my furry little friend.
I never thought your life would end.
I still wish you were here, sitting on my shoulder.
Or on top of your cage where you couldn't be bolder.
You were so cute, so soft, so pure.
I loved you and that I am sure.
You made me laugh when you would dance
And sing for me inside my hands.
I loved your feathers, wings and song.
Please come back home, where you belong.
I know, I know, it's no possibility.
I must let go of you and me.
But if I could talk to you one time,
I would let them out, these feelings of mine.
There is much I would like to say.
You were my everything, my world, my day.
Now you are free, as free as a dove.
I loved you so much. Goodbye, my love.
