Good bye, the Eagle will fly no more

With weeping heart, I say good bye
With tears that never can dry
With emotions I cannot say
I'm sorry that I have to part this way

Long have I thought of what to do?
Should I be leaving all of you?
Should I wrestle and stay?
Should I keep going to enlighten your day?
There emotions I cannot say
I' sorry that I have to part this way

I will make this "good bye" brief
I cannot just steal away like done by a thief
Cannot let you know how I feel
Can only say this day doesn't seems real
With emotions I cannot say
I'm sorry that I have to part this way

I will remember you all, the way I know
I will try hard and no tear will show
This time please be certain
I won't came back again to raise the curtain
I will leave just as I came
Quietly, as a pawn will leave the game

The Passion was like a nest
A family I would say at its best
But my wings haven't grown
Not too many feathers are shown
I have to land and cannot take flight
I have to leave your protective sight
With emotions I cannot say
I'm sorry that I have to part this way

I will take with me a piece form all of you
Know that I always will love you's too
But I cannot stay or even sneak
It would hurt you and me to deep
Life goes on for that I'm certain
Saying this I now lower the curtain

The chevalier takes his last bow
Sad in his heart he will leave the show
The Knight in shining armor has to go
Please do smile, and even so
A Poet once this sentence penned
A Man is rich who has a friend
I know today, this to be true
He must have had friends like you
Do not frown and do not cry
For I have to say the hardest words " Good bye"

Wishing you all well, health, freedom and peace
I wish you the most important thing of all
With this, my last call
I wish you "Love"

My heart aches and my eyes are sore
As the Eagle will fly no more


I will refrain to post here any names.
The ones I love, they know
The once I adore, they know
The once I cherish, they know
The once I admire, they know
The once I reflect upon, they know

God Bless you all



 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Although I have not been with P assions all that long, I've been here long enough to know that you hold within you a heart of gold.
Long may you live in peace and prosperity.

Once a home found, it is never lost.  You will be welcome back, Helmut, when next you visit, as if you have never left.
