About the Poem

A good-bye to the best thing one boy had in his life. He fears to lose it, even though he caused the pain himself. He is so confused and yet through it all, he still loves her.

The Last Goodbye

How can I say I'm sorry
When I know that you don't care?
Now that I have done you wrong
How can I say these feelings that I share?

I cannot say I love you
Or that I really truly care,
'Cause my words would mean as much to you
As a layer of thin air.

How can I say good-bye
Must I face my worst fear?
Must I lose all of these feelings
That I hold so near?

How can I let go
Of a love that was so true?
How can I forget these feelings
That I still hold for you?

Why can't I say good-bye?
Even when I was wrong
To think that these feelings
Could last forever long?

But I guess it's really over.
I'm left alone and so sad,
Yet I still think of us
And all the times we had.

Maybe in the future
We can sort this all through,
But until then, my dearest love
I'll say one last "I love you."

I can honestly say that I know how you must feel because I just lost the one person that Icare about too. And I know that there is no way of making her come back. But if there is one thing that I am still sure of it is that I want her to be happy no matter what, and I am sure that its the same for you too.

my boyfriend and i got in a fight 4 days ago and i haven't heard from him since. The last thing we talked about was breaking up so right now im in this akward place while i wait on the verdict. i screwed up and i dont wanna break up because i love him but he might. i tried to tell him im sorry or or that i take it back (which i cant) but he doesnt listen so this poem is the most perfect thing i have heard in my life!

I REALLY LIKED THIS POEM DUE TO FACT THAT I CAN REALLY RELATE TO THIS POEM. I JUST FINISH GOING THROUGH A VERY HARD BREAK UP. ITS HARD SAYING GOODBYE TO THE PERSON YOU STILL LOVE. ONLY IF THEY WOULD JUST UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH YOU STILL LOVE THEM, MAYBE THINGS WOULD COME AROUND.
