With the thought of your departure
a great fear and sadness arose in me
but now that you are really gone
it's as if a great burden were lifted

and my mind
once bound with thoughts of you
becomes my own again
while the sad, slow aching of my heart
just disappears

and somehow
in so many ways
I am returning to myself…

when this change I fought
so long, so hard
turns out to be

such a blessing in disguise…
