I'm... I'm...

All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go
I'm standin' here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye

But the dawn is breakin', it's early morn
The taxi's waitin', he's blowin' his horn
Already I'm so lonesome I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go

'Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane
I don't know when I'll be back again
Oh, babe, I hate to go

I'm...

There's so many times I've let you down
So many times I've played around
I'll tell you now, they don't mean a thing

Every place I go, I think of you
Every song I sing, I sing for you
When I come back I'll wear your wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go

'Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane
I don't know when I'll be back again
Oh, babe, I hate to go

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time, oh, let me kiss you
And close your eyes and I'll be on my way

Dream about the days to come
When I won't have to leave alone
About the times that I won't have to say...

Oh, kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go

'Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane
I don't know when I'll be back again
Oh, babe, I hate to go

And I'm leaving on a jet plane
I don't know when I'll be back again
Oh, babe, I hate to go

But I'm leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
Leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
Leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
Leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
Leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
Leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
Leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
Leaving on a jet plane
(Ah ah ah ah)
(Leaving) On a jet plane

    Its very meaningful for me.
    When my boyfriend came here for visit i went to the airport to meet him whats funny about that little trip i also ride a plane to go up the city state to see him.
    He flew across the ocean to see me and its a pain in the ass anyway.
    But were both happy to see each other i'm a bit nervous and he feel the same way i ran and jump over him like a little girl who saw her dad coming..
    It was very nice, he stay for 3 weeks and were both had so much fun. Going to different places and try some new adventures..
    July 05,2011 thats the day he need to go back to his country and it makes me so sad, were on the airport wanting for his those airport people to call them for check in.
    He look at me and he has this look that very sad and hurting i was trying to be strong and wont cry that time but when the airport people starting to call the passanger to check in he need to go.
    He hug me so tight like he never want to let go.
    He sing song (kinda silly) but it makes me so sad and i cry i told him to come back.
    Then he say "yes" he smile at me and i smile back he's about to get inside the check in place then i walk out to go home.
    But he run after me and hug me and say "hey baby wait for me to come back" i burst crying like a little baby and i said "yes i'll wait for you"
    Then we kiss and give our last goodbyes..
    I never turn back after that.
    I hate to see him leaving.
    But again i know the fact that he is coming back to spend the rest of his life with me.

    It's very sad to see the person you love leaving you.
    But it's also makes you strong to face that kind of situation the second time it happen :-)

    i feel this way when my two little girls leave to go home. i feel like a piece of heart is being torn out, cause i don't see them as often as i want to. i love my little girls and would do anything for them. they know i love them and want all their dreams/wishes to come tru. if anything ever happens to their parents... i want custody of them. they might be only my nieces, but i love them as if they were my own. i learned when the oldest was born what the phrase "i'd die for you" meant. when the youngest was born, that same emotion and sense to protect her from everything i could came up again.
