those words goodbye

He took her hand and held her close
Before he had to go
Although he did not want her to know that he saw how
She tried so hard not to cry 
And kept fighting the tears that wanted to fall from her eyes
While In her mind so many memories replayed
From the time they had their last kiss 
And to hearing those words goodbye
As he drove away he couldn’t wave 
He felt like he was walking his grave
Wishing there more to this feeling he craved
Because all he felt was fear and depression
As he thought of all the things he forgot to mention
Like how much he loved her so
And how he didn’t want to go
And how he didn’t feel like a brave man 
Because these tears he fought back just wanted to flow
There was something deep inside 
That brought upon his lonely cry
As he went to do his duty and fight for his country
And he didn’t want her to know that he 
Was trying so hard not to cry
As he kept fighting the tears that wanted to fall from his eyes
As he thought of all the things he forgot to mention
Like how much he loved her so
And how he didn’t want to go
And how he didn’t feel like a brave man 
Because these tears he fought back just wanted to flow
He couldn’t wait until the day he could come home
And hold her close again
Without having to worry about leaving 
Until he was told he had to go
And wish this was not the way the story goes
He took her hand and held her close
Before he had to go
Although he did not want her to know that he saw how
She tried so hard not to cry 
And kept fighting the tears that wanted to fall from her eyes
While In her mind so many memories replayed
From the time they had their last kiss 
And to hearing those words goodbye
