I sit here and wonder why you left me standing alone
The days go by so ever slow
As I sit here and cry
And wonder why?

Why you left me standing all alone?

You have abandoned me, not once
but many times before.
And yet I still shed a tear
Maybe it is a fear....
A fear that I know it is time to let you go,
To spread your wings and soar.

Fly away my love,
As I stand alone I hold you close to my heart
Knowing that it is best we had to part.

I can feel the sorrow in this piece. If this is something you have experienced I am sorry. I know where you stand and have felt what you discribe here. Letting go is best in a situation like this, even if it is the hardest thing for us to do. You brought the feelings across very nicely.

Thank you marilyn for your feedback!
Yes this is something that I have and maybe still am going through... Somehow writing down how you feel is somewhat soothing and can make a nice poem!

I felt as if you had taken the thoughts from my mind and put them onto the paper for me.
Going through this kind of thing is always hard. At least you have tapped into the notion that writing it down is helping to understand it a little better. Good luck. If you need anything, my helping hand is always there.
