I want to say good bye to you.
But I wasn’t there.
I want to say I’ll miss you too,
And that it isn’t fair.
I want to rile and rant and rave.
I want to tell you you’re so brave.
To hold your hand, and understand.
To wipe your tears, allay your fears.
To see you smile for just a while.
Embrace release and be at peace.
To show how much I care.
It’s difficult to be away,
When I still had so much to say.
It’s more than I can bear.
And so I’ll leave the bulk unsaid,
And say, “I love you” just instead.
And know you’ll always be with me
An absolute reality,
Because we’re of a mind that sees,
The world in its temerity,
Exactly as it is.
