Soft Petals and Goodbye

Just one second I felt whole

The perfect kiss

Sorrow less

The question fell

Like autumn leaves

Myself was aware

No matter what

She was my soul

Understood where I stay

I can hear you no more

Finger tips tingle with recollection

The soft curve of a jaw line

As my tongue once danced behind your lips

Said you would never leave me

So here I stand

Hands full of tulips

A lonesome grave

You were my truth

Pain of the frostbitten words she left me

Only you own this life of mine

You were my light

That led me to the place

Where I found peace

You were the strength

The hope that kept me trusting

Held me in your hands

You stole my heart

Took me deeper

How can I stand here

And say goodbye

I was moved by you

You were all I wanted

All I needed

You were my everything

There was you and me

Now that is over

So I leave you with these

Just soft petals and goodbye
