Don’t Say Goodbye

it is never easy to say goodbye with hand to hold and love last

wanting forever will always be beaconing all memories of the past

share moments in every breath with all that lingers in the heart

keeping the promise of love that ends only for another start

we have the joys and sorrows, it is life to exist to begin and to end

in every passing day, the bits of thought our heart could mend

gives a spark in our eyes and in our lips were the sweetest smile

knowing that we treasure something worth it all to go on a mile

this wonderful feeling be the strength and light to lead us through

among the clouds, among the skies and among the ocean so blue

don’t say goodbye but live in hellos of each mornings greeting

from the sweet kisses from the warmth of the bright sun shinning

each lonely day be gone by the wind blown away and wouldn’t stay

and the cold air remains whispering in our ears ” always be happy”

no words can express knowing you’re there always having eyes on me

the way i look at you even beyond the beauty from the deep blue sea

don’t say goodbye for our love will surely last in time of forevermore

along with all sweet memories in every footstep on this sandy shore
