    I'm leaving today...

    Going far - far away from yesterday
    ~ never once looking behind
    to see what was left

    As I get ready
    for the long journey to come
    I take time to organize
    my collection of thoughts, the past,
    tomorrow's future, and my "now" life
    without you--

    I'm leaving to -- day...

    Foresaking the layers of pain
    that so graciously covered
    frustration and grief
    and ... hurt which lay on top
    of me

    Relinquishing the empty
    feelings that gathered inside my soul's
    duffle bag --which I carried
    nightly ... daily ...
    tucking away the sadness
    beneath the cover
    of an upside down frown

    and I can't wait to depart
    from this place --
    this stage in life
    this phase of passing time

    to get to the place where
    a real man knows a whole
    woman's worth ~~

    I'm leaving ...

    and without any luggage ~
    no "carry-on" bags are required
    and no container is needed to
    hold the love and happiness
    from each new image of life
    that I am sure to obtain

    Subsequently
    that old suitcase of memories
    that was once
    filled by you
    will remain

    ~ just as I left you -- behind

    When you get there...
    UNPACK
    your things
    You can stay for as long as you like...

    This peice was thought provoking.
    Made me think of all things I have locked inside my suticase.
    I thinks it's time for spring cleaning....

    always inspirational..........
