The stronger the love
The harder it is to say goodbye
It is a simple equation
A child’s smile warms a stony heart,
A drop of rain starts a mighty river,
A sunflower turns and bends in the wind,
Made perfect in simple acts.
Thoughts of stepping out, and breaking the sky,
So hold my hand,
And kiss my lips
Touch my ancient skin
As I take the step
Reaching out to embrace,
Scattered petals ripped from forlorn flowers.
Let the power of your love,
Keep us together, forever,
Beginning as I leave,
For the journey,
A multitude of changes
Fill the air.
I am hoping this heartfelt good-bye is only a temporary one….despite the changes on the horizon.
