Before I Go
There’s so many things, I want to say,
Before I face this final day.
So many places and things to see,
People I’d want to be near me.
So many words, left unsaid,
Not enough time, in the days ahead,
To write what my mind, has to say,
Before all I know, flies away.
I should have told you long ago,
Of these feelings, you have to know.
They’ve passed by with hardly a glance,
Now it’s too late, we’ve never danced.
I’ve looked in your eyes; seen how they shine.
At something I’d say, some sort of sign.
I saw the tears that never fell,
You held them back, so very well.
So before I go, I have to say,
“I’ve loved you forever in my own way.”
No longer unsaid, I’m at peace now,
It’s time to take that final bow.
