Why Must You Go?

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.
