I must go away, my friend
he solemnly proclaimed
as if life would slow or even end
were he to stay the same

far off lands and horizons new
he felt beneath his skin
as in the past, he'd often flew
to places still where he'd begin

the ending of a desp'rate journey
the closing of a chapter once writ
where hearts again could yearn, he
softened his soul so that it

could breathe again, to fly once more
to live with passion o'er the clouds
that covered his simple eyes grown sore
with discouragements and doubts

weep not for me you could hear him say
it's recess time, and I've simply gone to play

This poem is perfect for what has gone on in my life the last couple of days.  We lost the first person in our old college group. Thank you for sharing it Steaven...well written and strikes a chord.  Hope you and yours had a Merry Merry!...kat

Dear Steaven, this is absolutely beautiful and also deeply touching.

When it's the time, the soul knows and remains calm.

Love,
Margherita

kat,
so often when we try to get something to 'fit', I find that (at least in my case) I fail miserably...it is so good to know that this touched you as it did...sorry to hear of your loss...life permits us all to experience its complexities...thanks for commenting

Margherita,
thank you for not only commenting in such a kind way, but for sharing your wisdom as well...many thanks

Ida,
not even sure how this got posted here, but I will be more than happy to thank you anyway
