goodbyes

Sun, 11/05/2017 - 16:23 -- okoesel

the first goodbye is hardest

and the second is easier

once you get used to leaving

walking away is numbed

 

but i was never the one to walk away

just watched you leave

so each goodbye stings

with the same old heartbreak

 

because if the first goodbye is hardest

i don’t think i could ever do it

loving you is the pain

of each of your goodbyes

 

you left your love at my feet

and i’m scared

that once i bend down to pick it up

you’ll be gone when i look back

 

and the first goodbye is hardest

when you’re the one leaving

but the last goodbye is the worst

when you didn’t know it was last
