Goodbye Never Came – Poem


I can’t believe you died

In the middle of a fight

Like it was time for you to go.

I can’t believe you’re gone

Goodbye never came

And I can’t seem to let go.

Imagining you leave

Trying to make sense of it

There must have a reason

That you didn’t say goodbye.

The vision of a truth

A mission to find

Why you couldn’t say goodbye.

Why I couldn’t say I’m sorry.

I’ve searched and searched

and nothing makes sense

Besides the peaceful creature

Lying and pretending that death isn’t in him.

He must have been the reason you never came back.

No one believes me

But I know the truth.

The peaceful truth is not peaceful at all.

I can’t believe you didn’t say goodbye.

There has to be a reason that you’re not here now.

I can’t accept that

I’ll never be able to say sorry.

That a goodbye never came

and that you’re gone forever.

There must have been a reason

That the peaceful creature was not peaceful at all.

That you’re gone forever

And a goodbye never came.
