A Feigned Ecstacy

Often do I hear you say, “I am leaving the country”
I just ignore it for I know it’ll cause me to be lonely
I shouldn’t feel this way, if I love you truly
But if it is what you wish, I will let you go
Though it hurts me so much, I’ll just keep it so
Who am I, by the way, to say don’t go?

For all I know, I am truly nothing
To interfere to your art of living
And an agitation to your daily routine
The only thing for me to do now, is to stand by
To bid you luck and watch you go by
But remember my dear to return someday

If the moment will ever come for us to be apart
Tell me the right thing to do on my part
Am I going to bid you with a smile or a sigh?
For I am sure, tear will roll down from my eye

If ever this is God’s will, who are we not to follow?
And if it is our fate, tomorrow is tomorrow
What ever this end may be, I’ll always love you, Vivian
Whether you, may be on earth or in heaven

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
