Setting Me Free

I look down on
your sleeping face
So different from
the waking one
I see the scared
and lonely little
boy you try
to hide
The one you
try to protect
from eventual pain
Tenderly I brush
a hair from your
Swallow a sob
Turn to go
One last look…
An eye-blink snapshot
in my mind
to hold you to me
like this…
a reminder…
a treasure to keep
in my heart…
I can’t stay…
My Pain is so
much deeper
than yours
Leaving is the only
option to set you
