When I Went Away

 

           The wind sighed, the clouds cried,    

              but I did try to live my life my way.

 

                  I saw this side,

              yet I could not leave what I would hide  

              for life to share, my wealth, my pride,     

              when I went away.

 

              The night survived,  I could fly,

I would try,  to say what I should say.

The thunder screamed. 

And I could feel

‘what my life had dreamed’.

Disappointed so,

to see the way it seems,           

when I went away.

 

The wind sighed, the clouds cried,  

but I did try for all to be okay.

 

It is what’s mine,

and I have love to share for all of time,

And care to love when I see the sign.

When I went away,

The wind sighed.

The clouds cried.

Sorry to post Kathy's youngest brother, Paul was killed last night. I knew him since he was six years old. So, so sad this fine young man has passed. Please pray for all of us.
