If somebody you love leaves

 

 

If somebody you love leaves,

Especially after many years,

Do not hold your tears,

But also do not dwell on the negatives.

 

On one hand,

The one that thought that leaving was clever,

May soon find,

That new is not better.

 

On the other hand,

The one who shaded tears,

Should have no fears,

That heart may soon be in high demand.
