parting

I wish we could be together,

I want us to be a couple,

I want to be nearer to your heart,

And dearer too.

I want to be the one for whom your affection,

Shines loud and true,

But I’m aware of your cravings for the open road.

And the freedom of miles ahead of you.

I see the dreams in your eyes,

Eager to challenge those virgin slopes,

I feel the daily itch in your shoes,

And your hunger for vistas new.

Deep inside I know,

Your life won’t be complete if you stayed,

‘tis a sin to cage an eagle,

So I’m willing to let mine go.
