I watched you walk away
on that fall frigid day.
Before you left, you said goodbye
even though I wanted to die.
You walked away amid my fears
and cheeks stained with salty tears.
I spent days and nights crying
then realized I am done trying.
I am better than you treated me.
I have more than you can see.
Although it seemed you didn’t care
life cannot always be fair.
I no longer need you to cope
for I have found some new hope.
You are no longer in my life
and I experience no more strife.
My life is more peaceful with you gone
I can say our love was all wrong.
I watched you walk away and may not understand why
but now I can finally say goodbye.
