I tried to say goodbye
Yet no matter how I try
I just cannot let go
Just why.. I’ll never know

I've taken more of what I don't deserve
You've taken more than you deserve
I've given more than I should have
You never cared as you should have

You look at me but do not see me
You listen to me but do not hear me
You touch me but do not feel me
You hold me yet do not take me

Now, Friendship is a two way street
Somewhere between we have to meet
I've done my part
Its now your turn
Or you can leave me out to burn

You said I'm just too high to reach
I had come down, I’m bruised and beat
It isn't me who's far too high
For you're the one who’s hard to find

You looked at me but never saw me…
You listened to me but never heard me…
Touched me but never felt me….
Took me but never held me...

And so I'll say goodbye
For no matter how I try
I just cannot hold on
Just can't do it alone

I'll slip then I'll be gone
I will just have to go on
In silence I will soar
I'll find me at my door

Don't ask me if I'm sure
I just can't find a cure
My soul just finds it hard to bear
This friendship that alone I share…..

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.

If with light head erect I sing,
