When I Leave You

When I Leave You

A Poem by Threads

It will not be in hate 
I harbour no anger 
it can not be in fate 
that star had its writing 

The distance will have grown, too far to reach
happenstance will have me, no way to teach 
your hand 
the caress it bade  

Crowned by the sun 
a Miller's daughter 
my thoughts run 
to make her martyr  

Have there help to memory's jogging: 
the same path and beach 
track, and held reach 

There will yet be sole survivor, treasured memory 
and with a gasp and sigh 
soon behest the role reviver 
to beset rest, and die 

When I leave you 
It will be that - time forces me move 
and remove 
That sweet confetti and fireworks 
from once a lifetime ago 
now, adieu
