    To My Dearest Jimmy

    Goodbye, my friend, I'm leaving you now,
    I can no longer stand the pain, I have to leave somehow,
    Please, don't be disappointed friend, you know I tried my best,
    But you my attempt was never good enough for the rest,
    You asked me once, "What have you become my sweetest friend?"
    You always knew that I would go away in the end,
    I told you once that all things die,
    Please don't question and ask me why,
    I know by doing so, I'm hurting people I love,
    But feelings can't keep me, they're not enough,
    You are the only one that has ever understood me,
    So please understand, that this is the way it should be,
    Please tell everyone I love them and it's no one's fault but mine,
    I hope I see each of them in a different place and time,
    I can't cry anymore my friend, coz I can't take the pain,
    All my love forever, friend, I hope we meet again.

    when suffering from depression last year, the plan was to write one poem/note to each person important to me and then I could leave.
    But that's all in the past.

    this is the third time I have read these words and did not reply before because I was of the same mind as Lonelypoet...

    with something so deep, I didn't want to get it wrong..so after seeing your reply, I'll say, that I'm happy that you're here to write about it...
