It's a bitter melody I now must play
"Fare thee well" are its heartbreaking lyrics.
Emptiness filling the heartbroken silence,
words don't come for hollow ache of tears.

Goodbye is the hurt that feels like forever,
the breaking inside leaving all empty and bare,
Life's storybook page turns before we are ready,
a new chapter begins, and we cry, "It's not fair."

And the weeping will tarry, for more than a night—
You're leaving me broken, broken apart inside,
And the evenings are lonely, and nothing feels right,
And leaving, you're broken too;
                        please, no more goodbyes.
