I Had To Leave

(I Will Always Love You _ from The Bodyguard movie) It is this way A journey each one must travel Alone into darkness And now I dwell only in your past memories. But you... are strong, a survivor You will be okay Yes You will go, on... Oh-yes I was not strong like you - When our son died I became lost. It broke me. My spirit: You know I was never the same man But you... are a survivor You... will be okay dear You, will I know you understand That I could not go on any longer That I had to end my awful pain So I crashed by car into that lake But you... are strong my darling So strong my sweet darling So strong my sweet darling So strong my sweet darling But you are so strong, my dear Yes, you are so strong, my dear You. Will, survive, darling Because you... You have inner strength. You Do. You do .... (Instrumental to end) ________________________ October 23, 2021 Poetry/Lyric/I Had To Leave Copyright Protected, ID 10-1399-229-23 All Rights Reserved, 2021, Constance La France Entered into the Premier contest, Change the Record sponsor, Natasha L.

Brilliant! (although I’d wish the poem character drew strength from her spouse … I love fairy tales!) We have a winner here folks!

Seeker, thanks so much for your visit, and compliment. I wrote the poem this way because it is the dead husband talking telling his love why he died and that he knows she is strong ~ peace and tranquility
