Until Next Time


Until Next Time

Until Next Time

The day came to an end
and reality stared us in the face.
You looked at me
and said goodbye,
as if those words
were the last to be said.

I couldn't help it, I had to smile.
I didn't do it because I was happy to go.
I was thinking back through the past
on the long friendship we've had
and all the times we shared.
Knowing it wasn't over,
I had to smile just a little bit.

In this world sometimes
if you're lucky,
a special person comes along
and makes an impact on your life
so strong and positive,
that it changes you.

It changes the way you feel,
the way you look at yourself
and the world around you.
It changes the way you view life
and what it really means.
It changes the questions you ask
and the answers you find.

I'm thankful I was given such a gift.
A gift so beautiful and fantastic
that I will cherish it always.
That gift is you.

The small moments of silliness
which we once thought to be trivial
I will never forget throughout my life
because now I know
when it comes to true love,
not one moment is trivial.
