I stopped... and looked down,
the road had come to an end.
Nothing but the unknown ahead,
nothing I could do but stare.
I looked back, and I saw them.
I saw the good times, the bad, and everything in between.
I saw everything I thought was important... everyone.
I saw everything I had done, and how it affected me.
I saw the past, and everything it held,
moments in time, thoughts of the mind,
every face, especially yours.
I saw what I had, what I didn't,
what I wanted, what I needed.
I squeezed and felt it, grasping for hope,
"This is it isn't it?" I say to myself,
I take a deep breath... and let go...
It was never mine to give, yet I gave it anyway.
But as the dawn draws nigh, it brings a new day.
I no longer look back, the horizons ahead,
I don't look to the past now, the future's instead.
I'll never forget them, the times that I had,
they don't bring any tears, to joy do they add.
This is it, I have to go, it was nice while it was.
thanks for the relief, the laughs, and the buzz.
It's been fun huh? But most fun things never last.
I'll remember the days when we had a blast.
We'll meet again someday, but for now it's the end,
With tears & joy,
Your author & friend.
