Together

When I looked into your eyes that day,

I saw a weeping, hurting child who did not want

To say goodbye,

Though the voice of that day felt there needed

To be a parting.

---------------------------

Your eyes trembled as a light you held inside for so long

Flickered, wavered, dimmed,

As the little boy you once were cried out

At the loss of a love he always sought,

But never received.

---------------------------

I saw the pain and the tears you would not shed,

And I wondered if you really wanted

To say goodbye.

And I wondered why

You spoke for what you thought was best for me

Without thinking of how much

It would hurt you today.

---------------------------

Every time you cry for me,

The part of you I hold inside cringes

As familiar tears shimmer in the starlight.

And I wish there was some way

To end all the pain;

Your's

Mine

Ours.

---------------------------

I hope someday we will get past this,

But no matter what happens,

I hope we will always be

Together in our hearts.
