Good-by / poem child

Written by: orphani ..........o

Poem, my hearts child
I coaxed you from a warm bed
Somewhere before the snow
With sleepy eyes
You didn't want to go
You had to go

Like a doll with too many clothes 
Oddly walking, I love you
With too many words
I let you go
But only steps away
As the last leaves departed

leaving there insistence of disorder
They must fall on the paths we make
Even the birth I give you will not last
But today is your day to play
And through your loving hands
Fling them up like rain, to fall

About your laughter
Part words, and your heart
As I let you go
The trees are naked with the truth
they have stripped me bare
Did I tell you that as you were leaving
