When You Say Goodbye to Love

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


A journey of love,

that took us through all the seasons

and gave us all the reasons –

to fall in love came to an end one day.

Life is often that way,

one must say goodbye to love,

left to go on alone

and remembering the days that were shared.

Memories show many scenes,

played over and over again,

photos seem to come to life

and you are with me once more.

I keep retracing the last footsteps we took,

last time we held hands,

last time we kissed,

these moments now must last a lifetime,

till we can be together again.

It was the summer that took you away,

there was nothing to do or say,

sometimes fates are not kind –

but the best memories remain.

You came to me,

many years ago,

when the spring breezes began to blow.

It soon turned into a love so true,

if only I had known,

that the years so quickly would fly,

soon many seasons came and went,

still the memories remain,

of when our love was new

and I first loved you in the spring,

for now it just remains,

for me to go on alone,–

for now goodbye my love –

until I can meet you in eternity.
