Stay and Goodbye

"You need to stay."

I hear you say.

You walk away,

I watch you stray.

You reach the lit doorway.

He stands there,

My companion.

You turn to me,

"It's okay."

I make myself believe.

He makes his final goodbye.

Memories flash by.

You both walk through.

This felt true.

But you disappeared,

Into the light.

It was a dream.

You both really died.

Like you said,

I stayed.

I fulfilled the promise.

The End
