“NEVER LET ME GO”

Your shadow in the mirror

as you walk from me

I lay here pretending to sleep

but I’m not asleep

 

I watch as you leave

as you quietly shut the door

looking back as you do

are there tears in your eyes

I cannot see

but only you know

 

You walk the long steps

from the house to the street

to where are you going

please don’t ask me

I don’t want to know

 

You once said

“never let me go”

but its your shadow

in the mirror I see

as you walk away

down the long steps

from the house

from me to where?

 

The Roses, red roses

their shadow in the mirror

you gave them to me last night

how treacherous you chose Red

it should have been me

who said that time

“never let me go”
