Farewell

Today I swear I actually got excited.

I really felt quite good about my life.

There was a rush of optimism and a smile.

And it lasted for a whole little while.

 

I dreamt about you all through the morning.

I woke up and I found some things to do.

I did not think of you for an hour or two.

And that felt good and sad and new.

 

I've been going down to the water.

Trying to get some stillness into my mind.

I dive into the memory of our time

And then I lie down in the sun to dry.

 

I'm doing so well at letting go.

I get an A plus and a gold star.

I removed your number from my number one speed dial.

I got a hair cut and a new coat. Hello autumn.

 

Daylight saving finished today.

It's always a little sad to see it go.

And I know it's not the end of the world.

It's just a little darker and I've always felt the cold.

 

And there's so much I want to tell you.

But you're no longer the one in whom I confide.

I loved you then and I love you still.

And you know I always will.

 

Farewell.
