I'll Need Time

I'll need time to get you off my mind
So I may be in touch with you
Perhaps I'll ask too much of you;
So today, help me find my way
Till I get used to losing you
Let me keep on using you.

I'll get by, but no matter how hard I try
There will be times I need to call
To wipe away the tears that fall
So what I mean to do, is lean on you
Till my broken heart can know
That I can finally let you go.

Till then the world will keep on turning
The leaves will fall and ice will melt
No matter how my heart is burning
No matter how it is I felt;
So when the sun comes up again,
I'll find a way to deal with pain
Then I will know how to go.

With kind collaboration from Robert Johnson.

    Separation, be it temporary or permanent, is never easy... the best partner will sympathize, and give you all the time you need. God bless... Keith

    You know what... I really like this poem... I like it then.. I like it more now... Thanx for your comment on my WOMAN.. I appreciate it much, Elizabeth. I wrote in Bahasa (Indonesian lang) first and then translated it into English..

    yep, been there. Never been able to 'spress it quite so eloquently or live it quite so gracefully, but at least this last time was able to remain friends. Beauty poem, thanks~N

    Till then the world will keep on turning. No matter how your heart is burning. The leaves will fall and the ice will melt. And it will not matter how you felt. So when the sun comes up again. You'll find your way with your magic pen. It's Godly kindness to help you know. Which path to take and where to go.

    This is very touching and intensely emotional write. It seems to be a sequel to the story you told in "time to go".

    An emotive poem, which reminds me of that great Tammy Wynette song, "Till I Can Make It On My Own." You can't beat a good old weepy. Nicely articulated. xoxo Robert.

    A wistful smile upon me as I read this-- sometimes it seems that time stretches out forever to me....but yes, I guess it eventually happens, that letting go--- a very touching write :)

    You need the three stooges. I don't know what thew women's equivalent is but you need mindless fun for a while. You deserve it. Tony

    Evokes heartache well. I hope it's just poetry and not biography.

    Ah yes, you have highlighted something familiar to me. Can be quite a loop-de-loop, wouldn't you agree?
