The only thing I know about love is how to say goodbye
I recall us meeting in a little park and you seemed so shy
You laughed when a duck waddled over your naked toes
and I pictured you with ribbons, buds and bows

we spoke the day away with ambient ambition
talking about penance and contrition
I heard the words from lips that seemed so true
and that day's wondrous gift for me was you

from the park we made our way to an old coffee shop
it was well past midnight as an old gentlemen pushed 
    a mop
we spoke about the world and the state it's in
and how penance and contrition come after sin

I loved you in a Romeo and Juliet kind of way
and will always remember that very first day
as certain as I am that birds can fly and then come to die
all i've ever learned from love is how to say goodbye

    What I meant, ~free cee!~, is that saying goodbye can be so sad and so full of sorrow... especially when preceeded a sweet 'R & J kind of' love... being said goodbye to is perhaps less sweet...Terry... In any case, your poem moves... in many senses...
