A Farewell

A thing we all share

Is our hard choices

To be made

And our lives changed

Mine is perhaps

The hardest of all

To leave


A measure of grace

I have found here

From it I must



I shall not wait for

Only pray for

Much I have found

Now shall I lose

You all

A final request

Look not upon this face

When tomorrow dawns

For it shall not be me

To all those

For whom my heart cares
