30 Goodbye

It doesn't have to be perfect
It doesn't have to make sense
But I hope the meaning
Will come through
What I mean to say
To say to you

I gave myself an hour
But I forgot the time
So please forgive me
For not giving more
'Cause it's hard to find
An open door

Sometimes it's hard to find it
Sometimes it takes all night
And I find myself standing
In the early morning light
As a new day comes to greet me
I tip my hat to the moon
And the sun shines in to meet me
And it brings me back to you

What I'd like to tell you
What I want to say
Is that I love you
You know our lives
Will all end too soon

Gifts are all forgiving
And thanks for taking mine
And I'll miss you
But it's time to go
What you mean to me
You'll never know

It doesn't have to be perfect
It doesn't have to make sense
In fact it's redundant
But that's OK
So I'll just say goodbye
For today
