She Quietly Says
© by J. Holmes

There is no great big ending
No sunset in the sky
There is no string ensemble
And she doesn't even cry
And just as I begin to say
That we should make another try
She reaches out across the table looks at me and quietly says goodbye..

There is no big explosion
No tempest in the tea
The world does not stop turning 'round
There's no big tragedy
Sitting in a coffee shop
With cheese cake and some apple pie
She reaches out across the table looks at me and quietly says goodbye..

Goodbye said so easily, goodbye said so quietly
Goodbye…

Just two always strangers
Avoiding each other's eyes
One still make-believing
One still telling lies
She tells me that I'm not to blame
But when I ask the reason why
She reaches out across the table looks at me and quietly says goodbye..
