408 Goodbye [03 May 2001]

I lift my eyes
to the beautiful grayness
of the storm clouds
the power housed
in that simple form of nature
is breathtaking and awesome
like them I am powerful as well
my heart may call for you still
but my eyes look upward
away from your face
each step I take is more sure
you weren’t it
the place I’d stopped
for a breather
not home
I may look back and regret it
but I have a life to live
you were apart of it for awhile
though your face I could not touch
your smile I could not see
your heart I could never claim
so I walk away
a part of me
will always remain yearning for you
and it will end there
your words seemed true
but I will never trust them again
was I important to you?
maybe for a while
I needed you
maybe you needed me
all I’ll know is what
I know about me
this is goodbye
I shed no more tears
I will not feel anymore pain for you
I am lost to you
as you were lost to me
I walk towards the storm
where my future awaits
into the maelstrom I stride
a slight smile upon my face
in my eyes a glimmer of mischief
I will look back to remember
how much I did care for you
and how quickly I lost you to fate
but what does not kill me
only goes to make me stronger
so I continue on my path
the direction clear once more
my eyes opened and bright
hope blazing within my soul,
like lightning among the skies
and I know I will find
the right man one day
so this is goodbye
