Goodbye

**rough copy.  

Night after night your image haunted me
But tonight I am letting you go
It is within my dreams that I see you
I see your essence 
I feel your soul

No matter how much I've tried to forget 
The echo of your voice kept playing back
No one before has haunted me so
Life saw it fit to let you invade my mind
No matter...all will be left behind

Night after night I was told to wait
For your eyes are shut to your own light
I was to extend my hand as I opened my soul 
To let you look into the mirror of my eyes
So you may see the magick of life
The magick you carry within
Magick to which you are blind

I am but life's messenger 
My faith I have accepted
The river in which others wash away the pain
The philosopher stone,
By which boys become men

I needed to understand you 
I thought life finally brought a friend
Someone who understands pain
Someone whose soul is clean yet afraid
A contradiction like me
A breath of fresh air

"in life nothing is as it seems"
Perhaps it was my turn to learn
I thank you for the lesson
One I will remember well
To my own naiveness you have awaken me
No matter, in life we all learn

I am a daughter of the ancient arts
I commune with nature and the stars
For what seemed like forever
The Gods would not release me off this path

At last, I have their blessing
It is time to say goodbye
Whatever message they intended now lost
Carried off by the winds of life

There is nostalgia writing this
Even if in your heart there is just mockery
For those who live feeling the universe's magick
Understand my purpose and my life

These have been the longest days of my existence
Trying to understand
Trying to comprehend why
Wondering what I did or didn't do right

Perhaps I will never know why the silence
But that question I now let go
For within my heart there was no ill wish
Just a raw woman opening up
Who one more time naively trusted
But all is recorded in the stars

You need to know I wish you well
May you find your path
May you dare to embrace your shadow
May you discover your light
And although this seems to be goodbye
I will always remember you with kindness in my heart.

I passionately believe one person can make a difference. I write from my own experiences and interests. It is my greatest hope that by writing about my own challenges, victories, hopes and learnings, others may feel inspired to believe more in their inner power and to fully embrace themselves!

  1. Somedays I feel as if you are writing about my very own life and that you have been an observer of it, I know tgat this isn’t the case but perhaps a parallel life journey.
