You only left a moment ago
Already I am missing you so.
You are such a treasure to me
It is hard to see you take leave.
I write this poem, hoping it will dry the tears
As I think back on all the previous years.
I wonder about your question before you left today.
In wrapping up details, was my real intent to delay?
Subconsciously, it’s probably true – you are correct.
As I bury myself in details, I disconnect.
My focus on things-to-do pushes emotion down.
Am I transparent or do you know me that well now?
I deeply hope your dreams take form and come to fruition
And that you are successful by your own definition.
Writing helps me work through all my distress,
But I love you more than words can express.
