I remove myself

All content copyrighted.

Light floods the morning room
Dispels yesterday's gloom
You squint and drag gold drapes across
Feeling a sense of loss
I remove myself
I remove myself

Smiling into your beautiful face
I thank heaven's grace
Your eyes beloved, look away
Her shape, golden hair hold sway
Mood gone for a toss
Feeling a sense of loss
I remove myself
I remove myself


You marvel at a thought
An idea for which men have fought
A bridge across forever
Sweat, blood, beam, lever
Your wonder is mine
A life line


Joy in togetherness
Lasts so long as we expect less
than the most perfect instance
Let go of persistence


I remove myself still
from the hope that you will
Someday view life
through the window that captures your wife.
