The Writer's Voice

The World's Favourite Literary Website



Jodi Ebbesen

It was not hard to recognize
the anger in your eyes,
but could you see the hurt in mine
when we said good-bye?

Our lives have taken separate paths
no junction in between
and though I walk, my head held high
I bleed from wounds unseen

I tried to reach you one last time
but words I did not say
left me standing all alone
to watch you walk away

I pray that there will come a day
when you will understand
when I will overcome the pain
and learn to love again

I'll carry on, I'll make my life
I'll stretch my wings and fly
but rest assured I won't forget
the day we said good-bye
