The Hardest Thing
The hardest thing about goodbye
is when you're watching your love
fade away and there is really
nothing you can do about it.
But still you hold on,
hoping that somehow things would
go back to the way they were.
It's really hard to let go
when you just don't want to
give up because you still
believe in what could've been.
And then you start regretting
those things you said or didn't say,
the things you did or never did.
And you remember the happy times…
You hold on to those memories desperately,
altogether knowing there is nothing
you can do; that no matter how good
and true it was, however great things
could have been, it's just over.
You've said goodbye
and that's that.
It's painful to just watch things
fade away like that.
Especially when they mean
the whole world to you.
But there's nothing you can do
but try to make it
through the pain.
And then maybe, just maybe in time
aou could heal and start
to be happy again.
