Upon Leaving - Poem by LyndsayAnn Evans

I'm leaving because I have to,
you can't stop me, you can't come.
The hours, days, years have passed me by,
and my ticking‘s tocked and done.

I will miss you but go on please,
remember me when glad,
I do not want to leave you
when you're all alone and sad.

I will of course be with you
I shall never run and hide,
like the moon above the ocean,
I will always guide your tide.

I will be with you every second,
through the good times and the bad,
there may be worlds between us,
but remember what we had.

I love you more than anything,
I shall love you when I’m gone,
I will be in all your rainbows,
and the clouds where they come from.

A love that lasts a lifetime,
is a true love, strong indeed,
and I will go, knowing you love me,

taking your love on my leave
