When is it too soon to say goodbye?

When is it too soon to say goodbye?
A lifetime you have lived in my memories and by my side.
Not a moment has gone by that has not registered in my soul
As either having you by my side
Or as a moment to be shared in the velvet darkness of your
How can I say goodbye?

How will I know when the time is right?
How will I be able to let you go, while I stay behind
Alone and bereft of your timely company.
My friend, my lover, my soul...
How can I say goodbye when I still wonder
Can you fight your way back to me
Or are you slowly letting go of this time and this place
Abandoning me to a world gone bleak
Bereft of your embrace?

When is it too soon to say goodbye?
Will you hate me if I hold on too long
Or will you understand my hesitation
At giving up on the only one that ever gave me hope?
I still feel the touch of your breath upon my cheek
Your scent lightly on my skin as I go about my day
Making me smile at the oddest times,
Making me run back to you at the end of the day.

When is it too soon to say goodbye?
