leave your side

When my imagination takes me far –
my arms become wings and my heart becomes air,
my name is Nothing and melancholy feelings
fade into sky blue –
and I leave your side for the last time,
the part of my heart and soul
I gave you over the years –
when I gave too much and had no more for myself –
will shimmer out of existence,
but your memories will trap who I was
in permanent stills –
do not mourn the empty bed and dusty chairs
I leave behind,
and smile when the sun shines on you
because it is the same sun I feel
in the air.
