Anticipation

This Anticipation

I wait for this day
I am excited but sad.
You are leaving and I am mad.
Its for the health of you
So I am glad.
There are so many feelings that I've had.
I want this day to come.
Only cause I want to show you
What you mean before your gone
and not seen.
But then again this day is dreaded
I want you to stay
What am I going to do without you?
I know I will get through this
But promise me you'll phone
If you do not phone this
anticipation will grow not knowing where to go,
what to think, or what to know.
I will cry on this upcoming day
And I want you to know that
All I want to say is
I care for you.
You will get through this
And so will I.
I will be sad and I will cry.
I will be strong for you
So please be for me.
I can't lose you, not totally.
So please, please have somthing to say,
On this upcoming day.
Only my tears will tell the tale
of what you mean
and how much I care.
I just wanted to say I'll be
there on this upcoming day.
This Anticipation.

Hi Chantelle, Excellent poem, you wrote with so much compassion. It is hard to see someone leave from your life. I know. When my son first moved I cried. I didn't want him to move out. I felt very badly for him. He wanted to make his own life. So leaving can be hard at any age. Great poem and from your heart, and very honest.
