Let Me Get To Know Me

I've gotten to know you, very well,
And so you say, 'Why must you go? '

I know you love me dearly,
And I in turn love you.

But even though I love you,
There's something I must do.

You see, I know you, better,
Than I've ever known myself.

So, now the time has come love,
For me to find the truth.

For...who am I, and what am I,
And what am I to do?

I know not all the answers,
In fact, I know too few.

So, now the time has come dear,
For me to leave you here.

And search for all the answers,
I'm hoping will appear.

It's time for me to go now,
And get to know myself.

I'm hoping you'll be proud,
As you watch me walk away.

It's not that I've stopped loving you,
I only want a break.

Please, let me get to know me,
The way that I know you.

It's time I got to know me...
It's the least that I can do.

    Mixed emotions over this one. Guess it is a sign of a good poem ~ something that makes one wonder. Leaving is often not easy. Sugar coated goodbyes are still goodbyes. ...so 25 years later.. did you find yourself? Or maybe that is a moot question. Odds are you had already found yourself at that very moment 25 years ago...and you knew it was time to go. If you were still truely lost, you would not have had a direction heading. Do you regret leaving? Retorical question Dee, no need to answer. Zen

    Dee,
    I am sure that you believed that when you wrote it!
    Flip it over though! If a guy said that to you, what would you think?
    And how did that work out? - - - I thought so!
    That ranks right up there with 'It just happenned '...
    when people cheat!

    Take some damned responsibility for what you do!

    Yea! , me either!

    Awesome poem- I really enjoyed it. The structure's easy to understand and the reader knows exactly what you're saying. It's strange sometimes how other know things about you that even you don't know. Great write! Keep up the good work. :)
