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, right 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.

      1. But if you love someone, you’ll give everything. Including freedom. You let go even if it hurts just to see the one you love happy. Oh life! can be unfair sometimes 😢😢😢
