An old poem of mine. I put it into a collection of poems for my family and friends a couple years ago, and my good friend Tori drew a gorgeous picture for it, which I love and enjoy showing off.
You were here again today,
In my world, so far away
So far away, yet so near
To everything that you hold dear.
It’s hard to see the sky some days.
Without you it’s the gloomy grey
Remember how we used to be?
We played and laughed, so carefree
Now you grow old, leave me behind
For you have someone else you’ll find
I’m nothing but a fleeting fancy,
A pastime for when you grew antsy
I always wished that I was more –
But you just went and closed the door
You’re leaving now, you think forever
But this time I think I know better
You’ll be back again someday
Here in this world so far away
