Just Say Goodbye-Ballad


why do you have to lie?
why make up all those alibis
you just have to say goodbye
let me walk away and cry

you said you love me but,
fine with me, I can live with that
you asked for some space
I heeded and gone back to my place

why do you have to lie?
why make up all those alibis
you just have to say goodbye
let me walk away and cry

a week later I called to say hi
you told me you needed more time
I held back, let you be alone
knowing everything’s just fine

why do you have to lie?
why make up all those alibis
you just have to say goodbye
let me walk away and cry

a month, you haven’t return my calls
confuse I am looking at the walls
I decided to surprise you and all
bringing wine and some chicken rolls

but to my surprise you weren’t alone
you were with someone new all along

why do you have to lie?
why make up all those alibis
you just have to say goodbye
let me walk away and cry

two years have passed by
you called me to say hi
telling me you’re sorry and cried
and that you were so blind

it’s all behind me now, I have a good life
now that I have somebody to hold at night

I don’t need to lie
I will not make up alibis
I’ll just say goodbye
let you walk away and cry

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Spk, You are writing something that's inside my soul..something i've always wanted to say.(that's in verse 1-7) Thank you. I wish someday I will experience and be the person in the last three verses- or what you call it.

And you're so talented.. See, sometimes life experiences give us the gifts of language and words to express our needs, fears, anguish and above all love.

These past few days my mind is torturing me with words, as if someone or somebody is putting thoughts in my mind and it won't let me sleep, maybe you're one of them Edlin..lol.

Thanks for the inspiring remarks.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
