Leaving Her Behind - Poem by Ellie Cook

I have been with you for so long
I have walked beside you for a lifetime
I know I must leave you behind

It was so dark at times
You take my hand and lead me to the places I was too fearful to walk alone
When I first found you, I was so small you were so brave
Out of darkness, you lead me to a land where I was safe

With veiled joy, I leave you.
Where I was too fearful to walk alone my stride is strong
The small child you are the brave woman I have become
You pale as does time
Fear not, the path is well lit
Fear not, I know how to find you
Fear not, you will never be forgotten

I have been with you for so long my love
I have walked beside you for a lifetime
Now, I leave you behind
I love you
