A Final Kiss Goodbye By Jasen Sousa

A Final Kiss Goodbye


This kiss is blown

to everyone who ever loved and admired me
and it’s blown to those who were never too fond.
It’s for those who didn’t fall in love with my fame and fortune,
this kiss is placed on the face of those who loved me all along.
This kiss is for the woman who was meant to hold my hand
and walk with me on my wedding day down the aisle.
This kiss is placed on the face
of the only girl in the whole world who could make me smile.
This kiss is blown to those who looked out for my best interests,
it’s for those who never took advantage of me, so the number is few.
As you read this, it could be very likely,
that this final kiss goodbye was meant, just for you.

This kiss is blown

to everyone who believed and trusted in me
with all their heart.
This kiss is placed on the face of those who knew
the light inside of me would shine in the deepest of dark.
This kiss is blown to all those who never met me
and it’s for all those who knew me extremely well.
This kiss is placed on the face of everyone
who was aware I lived each day halfway between Heaven and Hell.
This kiss is blown to the world, my time on earth is coming to an end.
When I leave, you might miss me, but try not to cry,
blown from my loving lifeless lips,
I send to you

a final kiss goodbye.
