If you were saying goodbye to someone you loved deeply and knew it was possibly the last time you would see them in your lifetime, what would you say?
The Final Note
As I sat down to write a final note, I wondered what to say
Fearing each written line would pull me further away
Thinking if I wrote what I wanted to say, you would stay for eternity
My written thoughts would be prolonged till the ink disappeared
I stared across the landscape, my emotions felt heavy
The last leaf torn away, from the tangled branch to hang still and empty
The time of fullness had passed in all its glory
Does the word forever have any meaning?
Knowing my heart will always remember
Was it enough to sustain me?
Will the memory fill me with warmth, when I am feeling cold?
Is it the last time, the last tear, or the forever in that last kiss?
Did the words “I love you” ever make it to your soul?
The invisibleness of knowing what forever was
The touch of your skin, your smile, your love
As I turn the last page of the diary, it ends as it began,
With a simple “I love you”.
