The Way of Love

When you leave
A little piece of me
Leaves too
For heart-strings
Cannot be untied
Like laces
on a shoe

When you leave
I cannot stay
Altogether here
For part of me
Will follow;
‘Tis the way
Of love, my dear

When you leave
I will not grieve
But I know
A part of me
Will always be
You will go…

Rob and Emily have said their good-byes in Nova Scotia and are on their way home…my heart is with Cathy, (Rob’s Mom) and the rest of the family. Good-byes are hard!
