Gone into the wind

I am gone into the wind
The word Love is  mediocre for what I once had
My Passion is not found without a will that you thought I never had
The Joy I have is an unbinding freedom that has led me to places you never imagined I could go
Watch me as I run far away, deep into fields of flowers and to lands far away
Immersing myself in something new, that is without you
I wonder if you wish you had followed me, and danced away the world along my side
Time has flown through my hair just as the wind does now
I’ll forget my worries as I run away with myself
Forgetting you is the best thing I could ever do
Spinning round and round the world goes
Yet I stand still
Watching it all go by
Breathless at the beauty I’ve found here
The silence of dawn swallows me each morning
I watch the great sun rise 
I see the stars shine like diamonds in the night 
My thoughts always forming and moving
Like an unyielding river in my mind
From time to time I think of you
And those moments we shared atop the world
Looking down at everything below us
And not caring, not seeing anything but each other
Being a part of one another
But letting me go was the best thing you could have ever done for me 
I feel that I’ve melted into the wind
Freeing my soul to go
Where I’ve always needed to go
Far away from days with you
Far away from here
To some place new
My soul is untamable like a wildfire
My heart as big as the ocean
My love forever sweet
I am gone into the wind 
Forever spinning with the world 
I am free from the worlds restraints 
Such sweetness of my love you shall never taste again
One day you will wake and morn your loss
Forever gone from you i will always be
