Alone

I feel like this is goodbye,

Like you have had enough of me.

I am always the one left standing

Alone

With tears on my cheeks.

I have weathered goodbyes before

And as you move on I will feel

Nothing

But love for you in my heart.

I will face the coming pain

With my head held high

Because I can survive being

Only

One.
