Why Must You Go?

image of older couple

Why are you leaving? Why must you go?
How can this happen when I love you so?

What use is the present when you’ve lost our past?
As I fade from your mind. Could this day be our last?

How can this happen while you are here?
How can I watch while you disappear?

I hold you here with me, but you leave me behind.
I watch without hope as time carves your mind.

I see you departing, more so each day.
My life will be empty when you’ve gone away.

It’s Not Your Fault

image of depressed man

It’s not your fault I did not flower.

You nourished me, encouraged me,
tended me with love and care.

But when roots find stony ground,
they turn and tangle, hid from sight.

With strength that weakened year by year,
buds withered, perished as they formed.

All you did could never heal,
the problems founded deep beneath.

It’s not your fault I did not flower.
You tried. I failed.
