Should I leave now

by Dec 27, 2003Poetry

I saw a future, marr’d by death,
But life I saw too,
And love.
Should I leave now
Forever I would regret,
And forever is a long time
When the sun would never set.

I dreamed of happiness far away,
Unspoilt by war
And hate.
Should I leave now
I would always dream,
And dreams are not reality,
Even if they so seem.

I herd the gulls cry, in the night,
O’er ocean waves
And shores of stars.
But should I leave now
I would ever wish to stay
And linging under fading stars,
Than from him to slip away.
