He Left Me With A Song (poem)

Updated on January 18, 2017

It was early I recall

If I know a thing at all

When I beckoned to his call

My name’s written on some wall


He was pleasant and polite

But in truth no appetite

Or my truth was not quite right

For this time there’ll be no fight


For this your time come walk with me

Your time here is finally done

From all this you’re finally free

Your new life has finally begun


I woke up I think at dawn

To a window I was drawn

Something’s different they are gone

In my mind a cloudy song


It would take some time to set

No grave here for false regret

Just a walking testament

A bit harder to forget


For this your time come walk with me

Your time here it won’t last long

From all this a chance to see

Your new life when this one is gone


Every morning out I go

Things like me put on a show

With these feelings we don’t know

If your truth is really so


For this your time come walk with me

Your time here will soon be through

From all this then you’ll truly be

Your new life is all about you
