Poem -

I never saw you leave...

I never saw you leave...

I never saw you leave...not even once or the last time

not when we were kids, not now we’re a bit older
every time you go, I’m never near. . .
very soon you’ll be another year older; so will I
every time you run, I’m always here. . .
remember? Or is forgetting, how we live now?

send me a good-bye text, an email, a letter or two
anything will do, for if you don’t...I’ll think you’ll come back again
wish me farewell, so I’ll know to feel the same

If I had the courage, I’d know just what to do. Sometimes I have to crawl and every day I fall…trying just to stand by you...

you must’ve cried every night, cursed out of sight
on the next day-light, you were once again bright
under those closed eyelids, where do you go?

lying here now, I wonder what she was thinking
even still, my mother won’t tell me what she heard
and your own child...what was his last word?
very soon I’ll be another year older; so will you
ever still, I never saw you leave
.

Thank you Edward for the stars, for stars are so delightful. 💖💖💖  Um...someone once close, you're on the right track. But even writers like to keep some things a mystery...if that's alright with the reader. 😎♥

Thanks so much for stopping by Tony, you're the best! People wonder why we write so much yet reveal so little...well, we all have different answers for that don't we? XD
