0094 The Lovers [01 October 1997]

A millennia
We have spent together.
So it does seem
To our bonds.

Your time has come,
To jump to your feet
And to push your way
Into the reality of the world.

Like your birth,
From your mother’s womb,
Then so you shall
Be birthed again.

This time into a world
All your own.
A world
Where dreams are realized.

I know I will not weep,
For it is not as though you die,
Only you leaving,
And the pain in my heart.

We have become
As close
As anything
On this very earth.

We have seen
Each other’s hearts
And heard
Each other’s problems.

Those who cry,
We comfort.
Those who rejoice,
We celebrate.

But tomorrow has come,
And yesterday is long past.
You must grow up
And fly from your nest.

Fly on wings of hope,
And dreams.

We will miss you,
That is for certain,
But know we shall
That you prosper.
