My Poem of the Day

(09/18/14)

If You Leave©

If you leave

I may laugh I may cry

Not because it’s funny

It’s because you left me here on my own

With no direction

No plan in place

All my dreams were meant to be partnered with you

Now I have to find new ones that don’t include you

If I cry

It’s because I’m lonely without you

My life has been all about you

There’s never been another that makes me see myself as you did

I fear that I will lose myself from within

That I will slip into the darkness

Never to be seen again

My emotions get the best of me

So the best I can do for my own survival

I to push the reset button and begin again without you

Erase the memory of what we once were together

Letting go of everything

Allowing myself to try something different

With someone other than you

This is what’s to come

If You Leave©
