I didn’t think that you would say goodbye

I didn’t think that you would say goodbye,
Perhaps in innocence I thought a child’s
Belief in fairy tales that dreams don’t die.
My dreams have ended now, lost in the wild
Stuttering voices whispering their rage
At the silent places where life goes on.
The maddening echoes of an empty stage
Calling out to us though one of us is gone.
They say I must get over this and see
That life is just the turning of a page,
A chance to fate, with every memory
Filed away in the back rooms of old age
To soothe the way but I recall that look
Of sudden loss, when everything is took.
