thought and kept

Before you leave
give me a day or two
a moment or so
and maybe
further and later
I’ll be… just fine.
Before you leave
I’d sigh a faint goodbye
and maybe you can step a little closer,
for …a last time.
And while you’d be that close,
you can
whisper my name
you can
gaze into my eyes
and yes,
I may quiver
and yes,
I may look away, the way I did
…the very first time.
Ahh, wherever
and whenever it will be
…the very last time,
before you leave
just stay for a while
and I promise,
sooner or later
I’ll be… just fine.
