On Leaving

Some goodbyes aren’t
Supposed to happen.
At least it feels that way.
Your heart isn’t something
That simply accepts
Being left behind-
It fights
To go along for the ride,
Demanding to be felt,
Refusing to be ignored,
Letting you know repeatedly
That you’ve left something
Precious
Behind.
Amazing how
Someone you meet along
The path
Becomes as critical
To your overall journey
As the path itself.
