I Can’t Stand Goodbyes
All my life, I’ve always had
A problem with goodbyes
I’d try to be strong, emotions would give way
And all I’d end up doing is cry.
Not the sort of goodbyes
That happen every day
But the long distant, or permanent ones
Where people move away.
Or holidays in far away places
If I’ll miss them, I can’t cope
Not knowing if I’ll ever see them again
I worry ‘til they return safe, I hope.
I’ve always been like it, I’ll never change
But yesterday was really bad
My daughter flew for the very first time
When she texted on landing, I was glad.
I always imagine terrible things
Disasters, especially on a ‘plane
So saying goodbye to those that I love
I worry I won’t see them again.
It’s completely irrational I know
But I can’t help the way that I feel
I love and I care and I worry a lot
I try not to make a big deal.
I try to be brave and try not to cry
But it’s hard when I feel like I do
But just in case I don’t see them again
I don’t forget to say ‘I love you.’
