A PERFECT DAY TO DO JUST THIS VERY THING

The day was wet, cold and just miserable,
but it was the perfect day to do just this very thing,
He was writing her a letter of goodbye,
it said that she no longer made his heart sing.

He knew this day was coming,
as time passed, they had grown further apart,
They  had different plans for the future,
and love for her was no longer in his heart.

He cared about this woman,
but the feelings were no longer strong and true,
It was time to say goodbye,
it was something he just had to do.

Then he thought to himself,
a letter is not the proper way to do this,
It had to be done in person,
with one final hug and one final kiss.
So he called her on the phone,
they set up a lunch date for later in the day,
He was early so he sat down at their table,
with an envelope in his hand, the waiter came his way.

He slowly opened the envelope and started to read,
as he read the letter a smile came to his face,
He stood up from his chair and put the letter in his pocket,
there would be no final kiss, no final embrace!

one final kiss and embrace is the hardest thing that you can face, glad he saved face and placed that letter away, the embrace would be wasted for it was never meant to stay
