I never thought there could be closure in death.

But I feel content knowing I could pat your head

One last time before I let you drift off to sleep.

It still hurts, but now the wound is not so deep.

Glad I could tell you one last time that I love you.

I didn't tell you I'd miss you, but I knew you knew.

Your half closed eyes stared at me, telling me

Not to cry- I knew it, don't know how or why.

Today you're gone, and my heart sinks to my feet

When I glance at the places where you used to sit.

My heart cries, throat clogs, but my eyes are dry.

I know you're at peace, don't know how or why.

Your heart wasn't here, I could see it in your eye,

Knew you wanted to leave- don't know how or why.

I never thought there could be closure in goodbye.

But I found it this time- don't know how or why.
