Too Late To Say Goodnight

Frost icing up the window pane
Another night when you're not here
Your pillow hasn't been touched in nights
I hate it when you disappear

Thinking the worst, would you ever appear
The worries, the concern, nights of no sleep
My heart was racing, the floors I was pacing
Pretending all your promises you would keep

My crying heart is split wide open
It is bleeding on the floor
The candles all have burnt out
Chains are now securing my door

My tears are no longer flowing
My days of missing you are gone
You'll be causing no more nights of pain 
The writing on the wall is drawn

Don't come back saying you're sorry
Don't show me that fake cry
It's too late to say goodnight
I can only say goodbye

    Tim it reads even better second time round - must be so heartbreaking to realise and finally come to terms with the fact that your relationship is over:-( Hugs Jan xxx

    Dear Tim, really like the way he goes from wanting her to return to hoping she'll stay away. When someone causes this much pain, it's a tough decision to make. Very well written! Love, Carolyn
