Farewell

I’ve met a ghost the other day

I looked at him, he looked away

 I tried to smile but couldn’t help,

To feel the sadness for his death.

                        *

I tried to tell him I can feel

The sadness of his empty being.

He did not hear and did not care

I turned around and let him stare

                       *

At all that life has put between

His empty soul, my heart that fills

With everything he does not know,

He lost the day he sold his soul.

                     *

I’ve met a ghost the other day

He looked at me, I looked away

I couldn’t tell him he was dead

I looked at him and shook my head

                   *

I’m sorry life has hurt you so

I loved you but…. so long ago

Goodbye dear ghost of youth and love

Our time has passed, now let me go.
