Leaving You Again - Poem by Michael J. Burt

i have to leave you again
not for long, but right now
tears that fill my eyes
pain that takes over my chest
loneliness that runs through my brain

i have to leave you again
watching you, watch me leave
makes me so sad
as i stare at photos,
to remember what we had

you were so used to waking up to me,
my smile,
my spirit,
this isn't for long, but i know it hurts you,
just as it hurts me too

miles that separate us
through people who should repatriate us
is me who appreciates us

i'm sorry i have to leave you again
i hope you are here,
when i come back
