Good-bye My Prince

Poetry By: Lady Wolf

My officer left today. He recieved a Red Cross letter saying that his father had died. Even though it broke my heart to see him everyday, this hurt even more knowing I'll never see him again.

Six months of paradise, was every day spent with you.

Six months of pleasure, though there was some heart break too.

I knew the day would come, when you would leave me standing alone.

I didn't think it would hurt this much,

Really, how could I have known?

You caught me by surprise,

As you told me you had to leave.

You held me close and whispered,

"Smile, that's all I need."

I held you in my arms,

Though I've never seen you look so small.

I felt your heart beat through your chest,

You're really human after all.

I suddenly feel so selfish,

Thinking only of my pain.

But you were hurting too,

I knew when your tears came.

It's time to say good-bye now,

As the trucks start to move away.

It's time to let go now,

But then I start thinking about that day.

The day I first saw you,

The day we fell in love,

The day you broke my heart,

Am I still your little dove?

You were my forbidden romance,

The answer to my every need.

You were the one who made me feel,

My angel with no wings.

Make the break, but quickly for heaven's sake,

Despite how my heart might ache.

I'll never forget your face as the bus drove out of sight,

You handed me a note that said, "I love you."

My dream, both day and night.

So good-bye my hopeless dream,

You will always be in my heart.

Good-bye my handsome prince,

We will forever be apart
