The Day He Leaves

A tumult of jostling emotions,
And a passel of charging thoughts,
Arrest my attention when we part.
Freedom and space, on the one hand, but
Idle heart and empty mind are my fears.

The day he leaves,

The day he leaves.

Passionately, I say, I do not need
You or any other, I am my own.
Don’t hold my hand in public.
I hold you up as much as you
Support me when I quietly cry.

The day he leaves,

The day he leaves.

Joined at the hip since we met,
Two quiet and shy souls,
Talking, sharing, and laughing.
Will you change while you are away?
Will I become a new person?

The day he leaves,

The day he leaves.

Life is unknown, but I will
Take you back with open arms
Ensuring that you are happy and
Whole, because there is no one
Who loves you as much as I do.
