'Til We Meet Again

My lip quivered as it parted from yours,
holding your hand for the last time,
I looked up and into your eyes,
our precious memories lingering in my mind.
Knowing perfectly well
that things won't be the same.

And in a single moment,
wishing that time will stop,
I heard you say the words I've been dreading these past couple of days:

"I have to go."

Dropping, your hand,
dropping my gaze,
I stepped back -
unable to look at anything but my shoes,
afraid that I'll shed a tear.

With an last stroke of my hair,
and a gentle kiss on my forehead,
you begun walking away.
And I,
I simply stood there,
leaning against the doorway,
as I stared after you -
my heart dropping,
at every footstep you take...

...I couldn't bare it...

But hey,
remember?

Until we meet again,
I'll always stand by you -
never stop loving you.
Because this strong affection I feel towards you,
it won't easily fade away.

So until we meet again,
just remember,
my heart will always be yours.

Good job. I can tell this is true...you write with such feeling, it is very believable (I mean, not that this is a good thing to happen to you, but...)...just really good!
