Goodbye

A word we always hear

Something said so many times

With a kiss, a hug, a wave

Or just a smile

I stand here today by your side

I looked down at your closed eyes

I can only remember 

The years gone by

I try not to cry 

I hurt inside

For you will never be by my side

For today you died

I walk away and say 

My final goodbye
