Come, come, then dance away
That’s what your life did
Flickering close, then darting away
Laughing merrily all the while

Till came that dreadful day
In the cold February air
When you dashed off permanently
Leaving me with words unsaid

Those words unsaid
I should have told
Announced for the world to hear
Letting my grief, love, and shame show

Despite my silence you seemed to know
What I was trying to say
When I looked at you I was saying ‘I love you’
When I held you I was saying ‘I care’

How, then, how
Did you hear my goodbye
Every time I bow my head to cry
That every tear I shed says ‘I miss you, why did you go away?’

My grief burns me to the core
Everyday cuts me like a knife
Knowing you never heard those words
Knowing, despite it all, I never could say ‘Goodbye’.
