I CANNOT SAY GOODBYE
(c) M. Catsoulis 1981
So many memories over so many years
yet there will never be enough
for you are my very being, my heart and soul
for it was your love that created me.
You gave me life and love and purpose
you taught me about caring
about love of family and friends.
You believed in me and taught me to believe in myself
When I was hesitant, you encouraged me
When I was scared, you protected me
When I was sad, you comforted me.
I have that comfort always, within my heart
and in my very soul, for I will always love you.
I can say we will meet again
but I cannot say goodbye.
