    A Passive Goodbye

    There's a million things I want to hear
    But a passive goodbye isn't one of them
    I've got a lot to lose but not a lot to fear
    So I don't know from where these feelings stem

    I've lost more than I ever wanted too
    But Still I hold on gratefully to what I have still
    You're one of the few that ignorantly stands true
    In a sea of people that don't give me my fill

    I could cry over what has left me
    Or I could cherish that which has never left
    I choose to hold that which I can still see
    And keep it safe from some late night theft

    So I haven't lost all that I ever craved
    Just a few stones that I can no longer throw
    They were useless as roads never walked but paved
    And it was better that they let me go

    So I don't really care why these feelings arise
    I just let them go like useless stones
    And I realize that passive goodbyes cover up long lies
    Standing alone breaks hearts not bones...

He's used giving me the boot as a threat before, and given me time-limits to get out on my own, but I think he's more worried about what me, and my little sister are going to do when he's gone. I'm sure he wants to see us proving we can survive on our own. It's hard to explain, I guess.

    No one ever said being a parent was simple. Nor is being the eldest son either for that matter.
