Goodbye my love
Words will only steal the moment
the beating of your heart
says more than words could say
as my eyes feast on your beauty
Your satin skin
tinted by the sinking sun
is how I will remember you
as I melt into the night
All I ask
is for a place in your heart
as you will have in mine.
Let me read it to you - SINGLE click on arrow
Farewell not goodbye
Suddenly the lights of Paris seem less bright. The laughter of moments ago no more. Eyes that sparkled now dampen ashen cheeks.
She leans from the gaping window and clutches his hand. Although close, they feel a million miles apart, separated by the cold steel of the cruel carriage door.

He chokes on his emotion, she sobs and gasps as she tries to speak. But she cannot speak. He runs beside her, holding on to her for as long as he can. Then the path beneath his feet ends. The monster heads out into the night taking away his very reason for living.
Now he stands alone. The platform deserted. Alone with his thoughts. He hears her voice whispering in the chill of the midnight breeze. ‘Goodbye my love’ she said.
He stares out into the darkness as tears of rain begin falling from the sky.
'Adieu mon amour’ he cries ‘Adieu, pas au revoir’
