Poem Tuesday: "For the Left-Behind"

After all this time...
Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter,
And yet...
I don't want to go.
You were worth it, old friend, and a thousand times over.
I'll be with you, even if you can't see me.
Our time together was short, but it was the best time of my life.
Go, then, there are other worlds than this--
Whatever happens, happens.
I'm a leaf
          on the wind,
              so slow...
It's a terrible day for rain.

I know what this one means... So many friends I've forgotten to say goodbye to... Letting good people slip away is something I'm too good at. Anyway. That was depressing. I had a lovely day, though.
