Never Say Forever

I woke up one day
And the hymn I sang one Sunday
Was broken by chirps of ugly birds
I walked out and said goodbye.

Words that bind us, unshackle us now
They are illusions that marred my reality
Your voice shattered them
I walked out and said goodbye.

I had to open the door
It was as wounded as our promise
Your shadow beckoned but it was behind you
I turned the knob and said goodbye.

The ugly birds cheered on
I did not see you sad
I'll carry on, and guess I'll look back
But I had to say goodbye.
