And so suddenly it’s time,
To say goodbye at last
After all these years,
I’ve left my innocence in the past.
I’m a big girl now, older than the rest
I’ve faced many trials but this is a new test
My heart is unprepared for this ungodly pain
And melancholic memories assault my brain
A piece of me leaves with you; whom I’ve known from birth
It leaves me here to wallow on this place we call earth
But is the earth strong enough to hold me still
Or do I fall to sorrow with a broken will?
These tears flow down my face; they’re proof of my love
I promise to do my best so watch over me from up above
For I am not alone on this realm; I’ve friends plenty
These tears will dry but my love remains strong and steady.
I shall push on because like it or not; it’s time for goodbye,
My time has not yet come.
I tip my hat; give a kiss and a hug.
Then I retire for the night while you head for wonders beyond.
Tomorrow is waiting for me so goodbye,
I will live on!
