Poetry Corner – “If You Go”

“If You Go”

If you go
I’ll let you fly
Won’t stand in the way
Because you were never mine

If you go
I might cry
But when you glance at me
Mirth will shine in my eyes

Who has time to be lonely?
To lament
On time spent
I’d rather live

If you go
I’ll pack your socks
To calm the chaos
Ensure nothing’s lost

If you go
I’ll wish you well
Because you’ll be precious
No matter where you dwell

Why make a wish on a star?
They twinkle there
Without a care
I’d rather live
