I didn't get to say I love you

I didn't get to say goodbye

I didn't get to tell you you couldn't leave

Before you died

This is my final goodbye

But I can't seem to find the words

That can drain away

All the years of pain and hurt

I didn't want you to leave

You were like my brother my family

And no matter how much you made me cry

I needed to say

My final goodbye

I don't think you realize

just how much you hurt me

And I don't think you understand

How many times I cried those tears

And I didn't get to tell you

That I forgave you for all those years

This is my final goodbye

But I can't seem to find the words

That can drain away

All the years of pain and hurt

I didn't want you to leave

You were like my brother my family

And no matter how much you made me cry

I needed to say

My final goodbye

But I guess it doesn't help

To linger at your grave

Because your time is over

There's no one left to save

There's only one thing I can do

To sooth my empty tears

And upon your headstone lies a note

Stained with my tears

This is my final goodbye

But I can't seem to find the words

That can drain away

All the years of pain and hurt

I didn't want you to leave

You were like my brother my family

And no matter how much you made me cry

I needed to say

My final goodbye
