Goodbye my sweet love


What wonders pass ‘twixt chap and lass,

As the seasons melt away, to be replaced

By memories that lengthen day by day.

A lifetime spent together, of harsh words

There were few, a bashful youth, a girl so

Cute, a lifetime loving you.


Let me hold you as the last hours slip away,

Let me hold you as I did on wedding day, let

Me kiss your weary brow, let me say goodbye

For now, let me hold you as the seconds tick



Let me hold you as the minutes melt away,

Let me hold you precious angel one more

Day, let me travel your last mile, I don’t want

To stay behind, Let me hold you as the last

Hours slip away.


At home I find you everywhere my darling,

Upstairs, downstairs, everywhere I look,

There’s a tear in every room, a loneliness,

A gloom, now that all I have is I instead

Of us.


Moments of sadness, a sweet sense of loss,

Persist through a lifetime like ticks of a clock,

You don't hear it coming, nor hear its faint knock,

But still it arrives, goodbye my sweet love.
