Goodbye for now.

When I saw you
Come and sit next to me,
With your eyes so blue,
I felt like I could hardly breath.

You said "would you like to
come on a walk with me?"
I said yes, then you
took me to see
Your favorite place
then you handed me a mirror
to see the smile on my face
As you drew nearer.

Then you took my hand
and said "hey, do you believe in
'Cause I believe
that you were meant for me."

Then I was delighted to see
You get down on one knee
And take out a ring
And say "Will you marry me?"

I hardly muffled a yes
'Cause I was hugging your neck.
It felt like all day
That we remained that way.

So as I stand here,
Looking down at your pale, lifeless face,
I let my tears fall on your chest,as I chase
That memory
Of you and me.

The good times we had
and the things we got to do.
The giggles and laughs
The jokes you told me, and I told you.

But now that is done
Because you are gone.
But still forever
our love will carry on.

And even though the light
is gone from your eyes,
I embrace you,
to say goodbye.
And it's almost as if I can hear you
telling me it's gonna be alright.
'Cause I will see you
In another life.

Hey there! You are a very talented writer as it so clearly shows here in this poem and all of your other work. The fact that you are so talented and smart to know that you needed/wanted a lot of emotion in here and it had to be a poem and not a song to do that is very impressive. It's great to know that writer's can change their minds in order to make their work even better. The title lets the reader know that this will be a sad, but they want to read it.. the title is a bit mysterious! ... (more »)

i thought this was going to be a happy love poem until i got halfway through, and i see the word "lifeless" and my breath caught in my throat and i began reading feverishly, tears were in my eyes, it was so sad, yet beautifully crafted, where did you get the idea for it?

Aww, thank you so much! You have no idea how much it really means to me to have people give such posotive feedback on my works, so thank you. 


And when I wrote this, I wrote it because I just wanted to try something new. It hadn't had any really personal meaning behind it, but not long after I wrote, something came up in my life, and this has a lot more of a personal story behind it then it did when I first wrote it. I mostly think of my really close friend who lost ... (more »)

I think this is a great poem and I love the way it tells a story. If I had to give you some constructive criticsm it would be to maybe have more regular stanzas and a steady rhythym. However, your poem is lovely as is :)

Wow! This was really amazing; it was sad but the way you wrote it gave the reader hope. The only thing is the way the first stanzas start with "then" if you cut that out it would make them stronger. Also don't put that quote thing it ruins the flow. Overall amazing!!!
