Poem – I Couldn’t

I couldn’t bear to say goodbye
to you that day, the way I’d planned.
I forced a laugh so I wouldn’t cry.

You stood there with that look in your eye
that made me want to take your hand.
I couldn’t bear to say goodbye

but I knew you had to leave, deny
the feelings others will never understand.
I forced a laugh so I wouldn’t cry.

You tell me that I
am the one you always wanted, and
I couldn’t bear to say goodbye.

It’s now time for you to leave so I comply,
and give a final wave and smile.
I forced a laugh so I wouldn’t cry.

I walk away, my thoughts and hopes now rely
on the next time I see you.
I couldn’t bear to say goodbye,
I forced a laugh so I wouldn’t cry.
