Don't Say Goodbye

By My Younger Self

Don't Say Goodbye

That little light I see at the end seems to always be farther and farther away

Even though I run toward it all day

I wish for a world, where I reach that light

Instead of being in this never ending night

A masking smile everyone sees day to day

Just behind it, I barely keep tears at bay

Lonely and lonelier more

Like rivers do tears pour

I just want that chance to feel not alone

Because this emptiness chills to the bone

Cold, dark, and sad

My mind is what is getting bad...

Try to save me if you must...

Before I'm nothing more than dust....

But heed this warning if you try....

Never tell me goodbye.

For if you do...

You're gone for good

Try if you could....

But everyone leaves.....

No one stays long enough to stop the tears.....

No one... not even my peers...

Saying goodbye... is leaving forever...

And dealing with your own endeavor...

Even if you don't mean it

Even if I can see it

That you meant to stay....

But I drove you away

Or something kept you at bay.

I just want you to know it's okay....

Even if I'm not....

Please... Just don't say goodbye...
