|Never Say Good-bye|
|I won't say the words to you that I hate to hear,
Even though I know that our time to part is near.
Words alone cannot express the emotion I feel,
Giving you up was not a part of the deal.
We built a friendship through the years,
You held my hand and helped to dry my tears.
So many of life's lessons, you helped me learn,
You gave me more love than I ever earned.
I used to try to find all the things I lacked,
You told me to move forward without looking back.
The most important things in life, you cannot see,
Like the confidence and eagerness you gave back to me.
So I promise you that I won't say good-bye.
I'll laugh when I think of you, I won't cry.
I will search for the sunshine behind the clouds,
Try to live each day in a way to make you proud.
I won't say the words to you that I hate to hear,
You'll never be forgotten, please don't fear.
Anytime I feel the tears begin to fall down my face,
I'll think of you and a big smile will take their place.
