The Good-bye

Written by: Terri Evans

Tear filled eyes
the last kiss
this is the last hug
to let you know 
you will be missed.


The last look in your eyes
thinking about
what was just said
our last I love you 
buried in my head.

Laying on my bed 
wishing it was a dream
I close my eyes, and
I fast open just  to see
if you would be next to me.

I know I have to stay strong
I believe we can make it  through
I only wish I knew if you
are  thinking about me too.

Looking at the same night sky
staring at the same  full moon
I pray to God that you will return home safe
to me and to the love  we always knew.
