Tears in My Eye

A poem about sadness, loss, and strength

by Lyssa Myska Allen

Tears in My Eye

It’s about saying goodbye
There’s a loss of innocence
The beginning I never knew would come
Is suddenly done

It’s about saying goodbye
To a hiding place
Where I can be free to be me
But held back equally

It’s about saying goodbye
To the friends I’ve made promises
To the groups I’ve built up
To the possibilities I’ve tapped

It’s about saying goodbye
To surprises
Staying for me

Tears in my eye
About saying goodbye
To what was for him
And became for me
To making decisions just for me
Because I already said goodbye to him
