I'm strong enough for "Good-Bye".
Sadly, I've been here times before.
I've felt the heartbreak..yes, I cry
Don't fret, just look away and ignore.

Don't masquerade behind your wall of silence..
You see, this type of truth is bold.
Your actions speak in volumes
And this independence and strength I hold.

Yet in time I'll take my chances
And find that "one true love" again.
Candlelight kisses, summer romances...
Ah yes, you remember when.

Do not worry-- No not 'bout me.
I'm strong enough for "Good-Bye".
So say the words...I'll set you free.
Pay no mind to the tears I cry...

I'm sure I'm strong enough...for "Good-Bye".

Sally, you've given me just the words to say to my teddy bear after all those long years, and after my rainbow pillow got used as a car pillow by my step-father and coffee was spilled on it. I appreciate it.

Nice, Sally. This one almost slipped by me. I'll have to keep my eye on you.

This was a nice poem. I wish I had known this poem when I was a lot younger. I could have given it to all those women I dumped. Then, maybe, they wouldn't have cried so much.... oops.

Actually, I liked the theme a lot. Just curious, but did you have a little trouble with the second stanza? You seemed to have lost the flow there, then picked it up again in the next stanza. But I really liked the strength you depicted here. A very nice explanation of tears and strength. As a man, I can't seem to relate the two. If you are glad to see him leave, why cry? I think your poem has done the best job I have ever seen of explaining that. Great innovation!
