If you're going to leave me
Don't leave me like this
Tell me one last goodbye,
Give me one last kiss
Tell me that you love me
Even if it's not true
Please just give me something
To always remind me of you
Give me your brilliant smile
Before you close the door
I won't beg you to stay
I know you don't want me anymore
Even though it kills me
I will let you go
I won't stand in your way
I won't let my pain show
Just promise to always remember
The love that we once shared
And despite the way your're feeling now
At one time, I know you cared
So, goodbye my love, my sweet
I'll always miss you so
But if I had my say in it
I would never let you go.

This is a very heart-felt poem that touched me deeply. Good job.

Love saying goodbye hurts, and you have said it well.  Hugs!

I have never read a poem in my whole life that captured EXACTLY the way I feel and reduced me to tears in an instant.  Thanks so much for posting this poem...i love it.

Beautiful thoughts...when the other one decides they want to move on we must say goodbye with grace and then we can go on.  Easy to say and hard to do...as you say we  die inside.     James

I agree with jmlee.  Let go with grace, and wish him well even though you are dying inside.  If he comes back, it won't be out of pity, rather love.  And my philosophy is the more you write, the better.
