Before I Go - Poem by Lauren Prue
Before I go
Before I leave my key on the counter
And walk out without a stuttered step
I needed to tell you
Tell you of the past that had been
And of the future that will never be
Tell you of my plans
Where my life will soon take me.
If you ask me, “Was it worth it? ”
A million times, “Yes, ” I’d say.
But I’ll always know what more could have been
Had we just let things be.
So now I leave.
I put my key on the counter
Beside this note and a diamond ring.
I would have always kept it
But I think you need it more than me.
Memories will always be.
Out the door I saunter
Don’t turn back, I repeat silently.
Now that it is over,
I wanted to let you know
I forgive you; I’ll always remember you.
This is just something I need to do.
Thought this isn’t the ideal end,
I take back everything I’ve said.
