Meant To Say

I meant to say
“I hope you have a happy life”
The door was closed before I could
so all you heard was “Blah, blah, blah”
and all you saw was crying clinging eyes
before you made the other side
I meant to say
“Farewell”
I meant to wish you well
You weren’t the same anyway
you had already gone
I wished me well without you
and heard every word.
