Goodbye (A Freewrite)


Life is too precious
and time is too short
to allow even a second of it
to be wasted on sad thoughts, and…
if I’m the source of your sadness
I would find happiness
in exiting your life, and…
leaving your memory
free from me
don’t get me wrong
by your side,
there is no place I would rather be, but…
I need you to be happy, and…
I’ll remove myself from the Universe
if that’s the only way your happiness can be
you see,
if you can’t smile
then I can’t breathe
I don’t want to go
but I have to leave
I love you more than life
but I can’t stand to see
you put on another sad face
on account of me…

Goodbye my love
I pray this goodbye
sets you free…
