Watch You Go

My hearts breaks with the helplessness of circumstance

My souls quakes with the agony of emotional pain

So deeply it runs with the knowledge of my hopelessness

My only wish is your happiness;  the tradeoff, the loss of my own.

So much ahead of you, so much behind me.
Our place in this life determined.

My hope for you is love and compassion, as I stand back and watch you go.
