I don’t want to say goodbye…a poem

I don’t want the sun to set; don’t want to see you slip below the horizon.

I don’t want to let you go, please stay, I’m begging you to stay.

I don’t want to watch you go, but I don’t want to miss a second either

As you leave, and slowly drift off to your sleepless world.


I don’t want the day to end; to lose that warmth you give,

I don’t want the dark of the night to come with its cold shadows.

I don’t want to say goodbye; it’s not the wind that makes my eyes weep

As I stand and wait; watch your slow descent into another world.


I don’t want to lose you; I don’t want to be left alone in the chill of night

As I watch you leave I hear you say, don’t worry, everything will be all right’.
