One Last
Ghnea George

As the rain drops fall
upon this couple,

she’s not knowing what

he’s about to say

or do.

As they stand there
face to face,

he tells her

they cannot be.

As she stands there

broken hearted,

she asks him, “Why?”

As she starts to cry,


is all he can say.

These words

do not come easily

as he says,

“Forget me.”

There’s nothing he can say
to erase all the pain

she feels

standing there

out in the rain.

Knowing he left her

in confusion,

she questions


as they say

their last goodbye.

They go
their own way.
But, the one thing
he will remember
is the pain he felt
when he looked
in her eyes
one last time.
