SO SOFT, YOUR GOODBYE

So soft, your goodbye
When I am leaving your arms
So sad that I can't stay
But time doesn't allow little charms
When you are all alone
Won't you think of me and sigh
And say a prayer for me
So soft, your goodbye

Darkness clouds my eyes
As I climb upon my horse
I will ride the dusty plains
My soul filled with remorse
For I am leaving you today
With a tear in my eye
Going without a word more
So soft, your goodbye

When you lay down at night
Don't forget my smile
Whisper through the starlit sky
As I travel another mile
My heart aches for you
Though I know I won't cry
Because I've left here before
So soft, your goodbye

In my dreams I have seen
Brothers in arms climbing the mountainside
Playing with you in the fields
Hiding my secrets inside
As I leave I grow weary
Of the hopes I saw go by
And I miss you so much
So soft, your goodbye

When I am old I will
Think of you and cry
But nonetheless I left you
For a better place to lie
And when I find my home
I will be the first to fly
Back to where the sun shines
So soft, your goodbye

So soft, your cheeks as I kiss
The face I knew so well
Until I come back my love
Won't you ring that bell
For as I wander the night becomes nigh
And I hear the ancient sigh
Of the world as I pass through, thinking of you
So soft, your goodbye

ChristopherJ~
What a lovely entrance to our family of friends and poets.
WELCOME !

Goodbyes should always leave softly ...
and hopefully return as a hello someday.
Hope to read more from you.

So soft is thy love,
soft as your kisses,
Feathers of a dove,

So tender is thy poem,
Poetry of love tis true,
So gentle are words of you,

Into your heart I see,
How true love should be,
I admire your poetry,

BEAUTIFUL AND TENDER!!!!

WELCOME TO PASSIONS...look forward to more!

I could see you riding those dusty plains, and feel your pain so deep.
This was so painfully beautiful ChristopherJ!

Very well done my passions friend!
