Left Behind

Left Behind

A Poem by ken burke

Quick poem I wrote


Seconds go by,
Why can't they stop.
I know its coming,
I know it's inevitable.
It's a great opportunity,
Its incredible.
But I'm gonna miss you,
I'm gonna hate every second youre gone.
Its going to be torture,
Why does it have to be so long.
I will never tell you this in person,
I will never say a word.
I never wanna hold you back,
I want you to fly forward.
I want you to accomplish your dreams,
Become everything you've ever wanted.
I just don't want you to forget me,
With these thoughts my mind has been haunted.
I will never tell you not to go,
I never want you to feel confined.
But honestly my biggest fear,
Is that I'll be left behind.
