Goodbye

We say goodbye, Knowing it is over, knowing it is ending; I hold myself in to keep from reaching for your hand. We talk of practicalities in bright, brittle voices, Knowing it is over, knowing it is ending; I hold myself steady to still the shaking beat of my heart. We talk no more of future plans, Knowing it is over, knowing it is ending; I hold myself still and extend best wishes to you, as well. We agree it is better not to see each other again, Knowing it is over, knowing it is ending; I hold my breath against a flash of reality. I watch you drive away, waiting for the pain; Knowing it is over, knowing it is ending, And I realize it is the last time You will ever break my heart.
