As I Leave You

Between stolen glanses
I see your soul
Dancing my way
Behind your eyes
A smile falters
Upon your lips
Your touch hesitant
Stealing glances
Across my hips

Your expectations
Dim
Sharing your rejections
I feel your pains,
For a second,
Melting

Let your touch be gentle
Across my battered hips
May your kiss be tender
Caressing my bruised lips
Those proping fingers
Inside my derelict soul

I gladly give you my happiness
All the smiles I collected along the way
The laughter that rocked my body
Let the tears carry me forward
Our pains making bittersweet sounds

My carriage awaits
Don't delay my journey
Fearing the worst
I'll take your pains with me
Your sadness
All of your tears

I pass you heavy
Pregnant on our sorrows
Do you see me leave you
I wonder
Do you see me wave goodbye
Smelling your sweet hair as I float away

Do you see me in deaths hands
Submitting my will
Knowing I left you pure
Rejoicing with our joint happiness

Your last few seconds with me
Pure ecstacy
My last glance at you
Full of sweet
Tender pain.
