Farewell

Written by: Asheka Collins

The end has come.
Sooner than I thought, 
and even with my heart pounding
 painfully,
I know and accept
that it is goodbye.

Farewell my love.
I loved you for a long time
And letting you go was not easy.

My dignity flew away first,
Like a piece of paper in the wind.
It flew away...
Long before I heard the bell,
signalling the end.

I was stripped, naked.
With no self-respect, or
pride covering me.

Farewell Sir.
Have a good life.
I bid you farewell.

I straighten my back and shoulders
And know from this point on,
I will never look back.
Letting you go, when the truth
 finally reach my heart.

As you wish.
Farewell.
Goodbye.
Adios.
