When I looked into your eyes
I knew it was the end
Never in my life….would I
Be seeing  you again.

You  moved to the south of France
It hurt to hear the news
You would be so far away
I longed  to be with you.

I spent my time in deep despair
Wanting  us to be together
Thought that we would work  it out
What  we had… would last forever.

So much pain… I  felt within
I was a fool to let you go
I wanted to reach out to you
I wanted you to know.

But pride and ego held me back
This was real…not some vacation
It was hard to face the bitter truth
You wanted this separation.

I got the letter yesterday
From your sister….your best friend
You had passed….you were gone
You asked for me, at the end.

But, when I looked into your eyes
I  knew….I knew it then
Deep in my heart , deep in my soul
We’d never see each other again.
