Pity, in place of love,

    " I realized, what was to go went away in a moment"
    What was to stay, stayed on, for all time"
    Touching expression.

    Had you ever turned back to me before leaving the place. i had been waiting for your back.
    the morning star is witness of my sleepless night.

    Disagree: poetic wording that fits the overall tone of the poem. Can you improve on it?

    I know Nan and thank you. Your always be my storm in the sky and wondrous gift Ill always know is there. Just because I know you are there. Tears may fall and pain may sear through my soul but our souls are still our own. And God Bless that name we fear so much in our existances.

    Leaving without saying good bye cuts a slice of the heart of the one who is left behind.
