Goodbye Is Not Forever !

Goodbye Is Not Forever !

A tender thought and some bittersweet tears
As this your final journey here must now begin.
Oh how I long to just once more hear your voice
Even if it's only in a whisper carried by the wind.

It's so very hard for me to turn and walk away,
And know the time has come when we must part.
But no matter how long it is until I can join you,
You know you will always be held in in my heart.

Here in this place I must turn and leave you now
Though pain fills my heart, I must not look around.
Every where I look, I'll see your face in front of me.
The love that we shared will in my heart abound.

Memories and longing are always in my thoughts.
Know that I will miss you and some times I will cry.
But I will think of you with love each and every day.
Until our spirits touch again way beyond the sky.
