The Mistakes I've made

5. The Last Goodbye

The briefest of conversations,

The most serious tone in her voice,

As she explained the end was here.


I listened, helpless, as she told me,

That I wasn't worth it,

That she didn't feel the same as before.


I watched as she stood to leave,

Avoiding my eyes,

Picking up her bag to walk out of my life.


I told her to wait, a final, desperate attempt,

I told her I'd do anything,

She said: "I don't think there's anything you can do."


And with that, the best two months of my life,

Came to a bitter end,

With tears, regrets and despair in control of me.


The hardest part is not that she's gone,

It's that I can't bring myself to hate her,

I still love her.


But I guess that wasn't enough.


Farewell, you who showed me how to smile,

Be happy,

If I can't do that for you, I hope someone else can.
