Your silence had me thinking my life was over

Feeling I didn’t deserve as much as a goodbye


With no place to turn to

I chose to finally listen

 

And then I heard

Music in my heart

That would have done me much good

All along

Had I paid any attention

 

Thanks for your gift of goodbye

It was the best thing you could ever do to me

Thanks baby for walking away

And creating the space

For true joy

 
From deep within

The essence of my being

Emerged a gem

Purified by the fire

Of the pain you created

So thanks for giving ME back
