No Word For Goodbye

This is an original poem I wrote quite a while ago. It's my first post, so please be gentle.

If there is no word for goodbye
then let it rest,
not let it linger,
growing stronger over time.
You shut me out of your heart,
not you out of mine.
Competetion comes, tempts,
yet there you stand, still strong in my mind.
Shall I forget you over time?
Maybe no, you will never leave,
or slowly you may fade from my mind.
If there is no word for goodbye.
