When You Went Away


It had been too perfect
To call it true
But now when I reflect
There was always a lot to sew

You had been kind
But I had exaggerated my find
It all got messed up
Seemed so stuck

When you went away
I prayed
For peace and love in our hearts
For having played our parts

When you went away
I did not cry
I was not scared
Did not even try

To question
Had you ever been mine
Was never my contemplation
The limited time had been fine

As you go your way
And I go mine
May the sun always shine
on what is no longer mine
