Its hard to say goodbye
But I know I have to let go
Not because I want to.
Oh! No, I don't.
But because there is nothing left
for me to hold on to.
So here I am,
In this cold December night.
Under the never sky,
beneath the starlight and moonshine
I stand here under this water fountain
Where I am to bid you adieu, my love.
The tears are frozen in the cold
The cold of the night or of my heart,
I do not know.
I can feel it in the corner of my eyes
But it has turned to ice and
refuses to fall down.
Frozen it is and so is my heart
An ice heart of unbreakable hardness
Beneath the cold hard ice,
lay writhing emotions
Emotions which I am afraid to acknowledge.
Suppressed and locked up,
Suffocating and gasping for breath
But no! I won't let them be free,
No matter how hard they struggle.
Because then I would have to see the truth
That this goodbye is going to rip away
a part of my soul
I take the first flower and gently run it across my lips
The soft petals as delicate as a newborn skin
The blue salvia of forever
With a soft prayer I lay it in the water.
"Goodbye my love, I will think of you forever"
Next I take the aloe,of healing,protection and affection
The three things that you have showed me
"Thank you my love, for all that you have been to me"
For healing my broken pieces and for loving me the way you did.
The next is daisy, of the hope you have given me
A hope that there exist redemption and salvation
A hope that I will never let go of again.
The fourth is the rosemary, of remembrance
"I'll remember you always my love,
but I'm letting you go"
The last one is the hardest flower to let go
It is the red rose, of eternal love
A love which is so intense and powerful
A love which had the power to heal
A love which will forever be remembered
A love that will live with me forever
Five flowers are floating away
Five flowers worth a life time
My five greats in my life.
and finally you yourelf.
Goodbye my love.
Long way down the road
There will be one day when I look back
And see the moments I spent with you
And I will smile.
Because you, are the greatest of my greats.
