“Goodbye may seem forever/Farewell is like the end/ But in my heart’s a memory/ And there, you’ll always be” ~ Fox and the Hound (Disney movie) Goodbye May Seem Forever
You said you’d always be there for me,
That you’d come when I called
Comfort me when I cried.
You promised that you’d never leave,
Swore we’d be here, together till
I never thought that your nobility
Would separate us, that the very
Traits that created virtue would
Take you from me now.
WHY?! When I need you?
This world is cold and empty, without you!!
All I have left, is the echo
Of your voice on the breeze,
Empty arms, and a flag clutched in my hands.
The screams of ravens
Mimic the wrench of my soul
While I wrap my arms around my middle.
My heart squeezes through unyielding fingers
Clenching tightly on muscle and sinew
Blinking constantly, a smile swimming in tears.
