my mind begins to think.
I wonder if I’ve reached the brink
and no longer know what to say.
but now it seems we’ve drifted.
My whole world seems shifted,
but that is the way life flows.
Each day, I feel more like a burden
and that it’s time for me to go.
I’ve never seen you with so much glow
and it’s your time, that I’m certain.
As much as I’d like to stick around,
I know that I cannot hold you back.
It’s time for me to start to pack,
though I don’t know where I’m bound.
Though we may be far apart
we will find ways to stay in touch.
And I know this poem isn’t much,
but at least it’s a start.
I know that someday you’ll understand
that all I have done, I’ve done for you.
To all you’ve taught me, I’ll be true
and on those lessons I shall expand.
So now the time has indeed come
and must go before I change my mind.
I’ll never forget all I’m leaving behind
and I can only hope it’s you I become.
I will always remember where truly is home
for it and you will always be in my heart.
I promise that I shall always think smart
and to give as much kindness as I’ve been shown.
Life has a funny way of working
and its challenges I’m ready to face.
I will handle my battles with grace.
And just as your life is, mine is now starting.
If I’m ever feeling alone,
I know how easily I find you.
Your love for me I will always value
and I’ll have that always in the unknown.
So at the end of the night
I’ve reached this decision.
Life is all about revision
and our futures look bright.
Time to take that leap of faith
and head out on my own.
Time to show how much I’ve grown
and to show how your life will keep me safe.
And even though it seems we’ll be apart forever,
our lives are full of hope, love, dreams, and trust.
It will take some time for us to adjust,
but still apart we’re together.
