I'm Going Away

I’m going away for a while
Life seems to have stolen my smile

Some of you I will miss so much
Maybe later we’ll get in touch

In Cyprus my daughter I'll see
T'will bring joy to sorry old me

I won’t have much time to be here
But some of you I’ll still hold dear

I seem to have lost some desire
Due to the mishap with the “fire”

Not so proud of what I have done
So I’ll escape to have some fun

My heart is made of marshmallow
Bruises by gal or by fellow

Don’t worry, it’s just for a time
Maybe later I’ll try to rhyme

But for now, it is surely goodbye
Hope to see you all by and by.

    Thanks, Sara. The little misunderstanding has been cleared. I'm in a better place. Thanks for the love and care. It means a lot to me. No internet at my daughter's place. Student flat. I'm online here at my dad's place. Sending hugs!

    I got a bit discouraged, Jack. On many levels. Hard to explain. I will be back, I'm sure...I need a weeks holiday with my daughter in Cyprus. Need to clear my head and get recharged. I'm drained! Will see you on the other side. I look for your name too! Hugs! Thanks for the lovely post!

    I will, my dear. It's just that life has been hectic recently what with having to correct final exams, essays and the like. I have to get ready for the new semester and I just need a break! I probably won't be able to stay away, but...just in case...love ya!
