When I Go
When I go
don’t learn to live without me
just learn to live with my love
in a different way.
And if you need to see me
close your eyes
or look in your shadow
when the sun shines
Sit with me in the quiet and you will know
that I did not leave.
There is no leaving when a soul is blended
When I go
don’t learn to look for me in the moments.
