Good Nite To My Past Love

by Michael Finley

I heard you say
what I wished 
would have,
could have
what seems like centuries ago
and now I am depleted,
finished, defeated and done
because you said it
that phrase
but much too late
to make it something
more than what I need it to be
so I now know 
that you are gone
and I am just a passerby
in your present scene
goodbye love
because I cannot live 
in shadows
but my need, my love for you 
will never die
because you are always and forever
the truest thing I have ever known
