I'm sorry I had to leave,
to find what was true.
I left you behind.
I'm sorry to say I cannot return to you.

Every waking moment,
you come into my mind.
I see you in others,
so loving and kind.

Though my wounds are deep,
the wounds inside me will never heal.
Never again will I be with you,
to tell you how I feel.

The only time I see you,
is in the distance,
in the shadows.
unable to give you guidance.

Through these endless days,
countless memories flow in my mind.
I think of past friends,
and how I left you behind.

I have tried my best,
in keeping you safe.
I wish you would understand,
why I have to live this fate.

I have seen you grow.
I have seen you succeed.
I have seen you face trials.
I have seen you lead.

My dear brother,
one day our paths will intertwine,
but not now.
Not at this time.
