Up and Down

written by: Aaron McMillan

@poetryonthemind

 

Sinking away out of sight, I’m not in control,
Every day I have to say goodbye, it’s not by choice,
Staying above beyond my time is impossible,
Can you not hear my sad screaming voice?

It’s only you over there watching me disappear,
Why don’t you come closer, or am I too far away,
The way is easy my remaining light makes it clear,
I don’t blame you though staying in the security of the bay.

I’m getting closer to the horizon, it won’t be long now,
You should stand up on the rocks to see the last of me,
We have these last few moments together that I’ll allow,
I’ll be back for you tomorrow that much I can guarantee
