Drifting Away

Don't put on that sorry face because you are leaving me,
I'm happy for you.
For whatever makes you happy,
Makes me happy as well.
But you mean the world to me,
Sorry I never told you that before;
Forgive my pride.

But for a long time, ..
I missed the girl I fell in love with.
The girl with the most magnificent eyes I've ever seen.
The girl who when she looked at me,
I would hear life overflowing,
I would hear my heart pound,
And my sorrows flea to make room for joy.

There were times when you used to look at me with no lie in your eyes.
How I miss those happy days.

You are a blessing to me,
And a gift from heaven.
So it's not goodbye,
But bye bye for now;
Because I know we will be together again.

    Beautiful and true. Love never dies it is always with us, once you find your home it will always be home to the heart and soul once you see God in someone else it will always be. Love this poem Peter, I feel all that when I read them. Thank you! God Bless (Report) Reply

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
