Au Revoir ma cheri amor
I feel you pulling away
and knew that the words 
calling you back
are no longer mine to cry out

moments and memories
blurred visions of yesterday

that which I held as our forever  
no longer part of my tomorrow

I watched you drift away
intimately knowing
that I was to take
a separate path

    Yes we can feel it when the other person no longer loves the same. Keep the magical pen flowing. Sara

    IRISH (Michael) Whatever happened to forever? Oh, how my soul misses... It seems to be lost in dreams of greener pastures only to find in the end that grass tastes the same unless it has been nurtured... And moving on is NOT always easy. Your words are wonderful. Drifting away is like helplessly trying to catch a plastic bag caught by the wind and flying to a tree top... out of reach. Thanks for the mental journey enjoyed because of your words, today. An excellent write. Lovingly, Dane Ann

    It's so sad to see love "drift away," Michael. All we can do is cherish the memories of happy times when our loved one chooses to "take a separate path." Very nice! Love, Carolyn
