~Why~

I'll never be able to say good bye and mean it..
you are the other half of me..
My heart and soul,
the reason that I breathe..

they have no right to try and keep us apart..
They may just as well,
put me in my grave,
and stomp on my heart...

And I love you now even more then
i loved you before..
and I will till the day i die...
And it's so sad that it takes a second to say hello,
And forever to say good-bye..

I once felt safe and secure with you,
Now every moment without you feels an eternity,
And I lower my head and cry..
Lord why does it take a second to say hello
and forever to say good-bye.....

I've tried so hard..
to get up and move on.
.my friends tell me girl,you're beautiful.,
You'll meet someone and go on again...,girl you are going to be ok...



And I just want to scream..and ask why., whyyyyyyy
Why does it have to be this way.... left alone we'd be ok.....
Is it ever going to be just you and me again?
And I fall down to my knees and I cry....

Why oh why Lord, does it take a second to say good-bye
No no no ........... just not going to say good bye......
and I cant eat and I cant sleep
I cry and ask the Lord my soul to keep..
And toss and turn all night and ask him why...
why why why why why does it take a second to say hello
And forever to say good-bye.....

Love is not always tranquility, it's fear and hate and chaos..
and the best and worst of everything..
Life is too short and we can't let them win
and just throw it all away.
We may never get this chance again..
it's our lives to live not theirs..

So they dont really have a say...... let them live their own lives..
And maybe one day they will be lucky enough to have what we had...
Or maybe like us be left to wonder why.
It takes a second to say hello
AND FOREVER TO SAY GOOD BYE..

Quiet Storm...what a heartfelt painful write...but I agree, love is a double sided coin....and the side of joy and love....has a painful counterpart...the downside of love....Kathyhug

There is nothing more sad or painful than being stuck in goodbye when you don't want to say goodbye. I think the one thing that sets it all in the right perspective for me is in Garth Brooks song The Dance.



The Dance
Written by: Tony Arata


Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared 'neath the stars alone
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known that you'd ever say goodbye

And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance

Holding you I held everything
For a moment wasn't I a king
But if I'd only known how the king would fall
Hey who's to say you know I might have chanced it all

And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance

Yes my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance

about 3 years ago I found a man who i believed was the man i was going to spend forever with,
he hurt me very badly, left without a word for months and it broke my heart, took me almost a year to be able to breath again without my heart burning, and suddenly i knew he was there to help me grow and show me what i needed in life, he is a memory now and mostly a good one:-)

he was part of why i am stronger now, and now i have the most precious man in my life, one who will always be there and understands me for who i am, if i was still with Mark i would have missed meeting Michael and my soul would not have been complete
hug

its hard but there is a reason for everything in life, have faith and time gets you thereteddybear
