Hanging by a thread that you don’t even know
It is just a cut away..
They would whisper goodbye from afar
When you are still smiling at them
They would wave goodbye
When you turn your back on them
They would be ready to walk away
And you would never get to say goodbye
Why didn’t they tell you
Why didn’t they give you any sign
Why didn’t you catch on
Why didn’t you see it in their eyes
The discreet, silent, unspoken goodbye.
