Her tears tasted bittersweet
Her smile slightly curved
With him she felt complete
He was what she deserved

His eyes hid sadness of his heart,
His voice escaped the lies
He knew, they’ll have to live apart
He swallowed all his pride

They had to say goodbye
Both shaken by the fact
Since only in a blink of an eye
He had all of his things packed…

He packed his clothes and all his stuff
She watched him, hiding from behind…
She hoped that this was all a bluff
Yet this was truth, hurtful, unkind.

He looked at her and took her hand
She looked away in hope
He told her, no matter where he’ll land
He’ll always think of her…

He told her that he won’t forget
The way she made him feel
He told her, there was no regret
And it was not his will.

They stood there as the silence spoke
The words they couldn’t say
They put their feelings on lock
And then he moved away
