Stay away…

It breaks my heart to stay away,
but I do because I love you.
How much; alas, no words can say
it breaks my heart to stay away.
A promise was given one day,
to that I must always stay true.
It breaks my heart to stay away,
but I do because I love you.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
