I must leave you...


I must leave you...

Alas! Hearts are broken,

panic sets in...

Oh! How I hate to go,

hearts pounding

inside of my head…

You hold my heart

in your hand

and the blood stained

tears, ran

down your face


I must leave you...

Alas! Hearts are fiery,

like shooting stars

flaming out

in the night…

Oh! They burn in the

midnight air


This love is not to be...

Alas! You are near me,

and our hearts burn,

yearn to love

Oh! Why must I go…

You are so alive

and beautiful


I look upon you...

Alas! You are sleeping,

and the midnight

tolls for us

I kiss you in the moonlight

Oh! We hold so tight

to dream...


I awake and find...

you gone

Alas! I love you,

and my heart is broken

pounding in my head


I long to touch you...

Alas! Sweet youth, it’s you,

you shall prevail…

and only dreaming am I

young and satiated

I must leave

Oh! If only you knew...


This love must end...

Alas! Our hearts beat,

beat together

in our embrace…

We kiss and it’s forever


And what happens...

Oh! I awaken and find

you’re not there

Alas! it’s only a dream

I only hold your illusion


I must leave you...

Oh! In this waking hour

at sunrise

I don’t want to go

Please return to me

I am close by...

Alas! I have to go

I have chose another

a long time ago…

Oh! What love is true ?

I can’t walk away,

Can I?


yet I must leave you...

Dreams can be so much more beauiful and wonderful than reality. There are times that we would love to stay in the dream. Maybe that's why we write poetry and books. I love the way you expressed this special feeling.
