A Silent Goodbye~In the Tropical Breeze

Say goodbye from afar,
Watching me in my long red dress
Surrounded by the men at the bar,
That gaze just aching finesse

Dancers swaying in the tropical breeze,
The wind sighing through those tropical trees,
Eyes murmur a silent song,
Before the dawn breaks, Iíll be long gone

Please go, I tremble in your sight,
To leave, not stay, itís taking all my might,
Your grace is etched in my mind, all through the night,
The world is out there to explore

Say goodbye from afar
Watching you in my long red dress,
Leaning against the bar, smoking a cigarrette
That gaze just weeping finesse

The tear weeps down my cheek,
That upright pose that will not break,
Watching you watching me,
Being alone this night, is looking more bleak

Please go, I tremble in your sight
To leave, not stay, itís taking all my might
Your grace is etched in my mind, all throughout the night,
The world is out there to explore

Please write me your letters
Although in darkness, I will reply
Though in pain Iíll feel better
With your words stamped to my chest

Like that Iíll die

Like that Iíll die

Say goodbye from afar,
Watching me in my long red dress
Surrounded by the men at the bar,
That gaze just aching finesse
Ashe

I can see you in the dress. That is how good this piece is. The anguish and the longing is palpable. There is an emotional dissonance as fragile as thin glass.

Some write of longing, some of farewell. This is a lot of each.

Ashe, this is hauntingly beautiful and so poignant. I tiptoe around with my words. I dare not write too much upon this canvass, in reverence.
