They will go as they’ve come

Falling away

Like old dried leaves

In the wake

Of winter’s biting scorn

A little too fast, not slow enough

They will depart, one by one

From the sound of their voices

To the feel of their touch

Their senses ‘ll leave you

As your senses ‘ll abide the loss–

Their loss, not yours

They left, not you

But it wasn’t them, it was it

Life happened, time gave

It happens when it happens

It ends when it ends

They happened. They ceased.

Nothing should ever last

MoreΒ than it lasts.

So you’ll hurt,

but not a heartbeat more

And you’ll move on, because

Isn’t that what people do?
