My Last Goodbye

Why stay with you and be your love?
After all that you've forgotten of?
This lie we've lived until the end
Shall be the last of this to mend. 

Why live with lies and quarrels lost?
I've dreamt of this but forgot the cost...
Standing fast to fight through the cold,
And the story of love, untold. 

For my world has stopped revolving,
And the cold has settled 'round me,
'Til you return, time's standing still,
With its stinging, breathless chill. 

And as this sunset spreads its colors,
The reds and gold's of skies do smother
The clouds tell stories left unheard
They've seen it all, now softly blurred. 

Can you hear this, its quiet sigh?
as it is toning down the sky
Though twinkling stars will smile through
I dream of skies the deepest blue.

 The raindrops tell a sickening tale
They'll laugh and say "Your love has failed."
The rainbow smiles all too true
but then will frown a humble hue.  

I'll lie here all too much alone
try to forget the hate love's shown
My love whispers across the sky
It says to you my last goodbye.
