Overdue Goodbyes

strange, but true

the calm I’ve found without you

I wanted so truly & honestly

to make it right

but slowly, I lost the fight

all the years of loneliness

caught up with me-made me a mess

I couldn’t go on one more day

I just couldn’t make myself stay

to play this sad charade

I have to live with the choice I made

I see the sadness in your eyes

it’s too obvious to disguise

I apologize for my part

but something new has got to start

we will always have the memories

but now is time to let go-

I wrote this ensuing the collapse of my first marriage.
