Thank You For Leaving Me Behind - Poem by Ina SchrodersZeeders

you took the ferry without me
and didn’t talk about returning
separation, an indifferent sea
while my heart just kept on yearning

I couldn’t be with you
and sunshine didn’t comfort me
the way it used to do
as with you I longed to be

of course I knew that this was better
no future was there for our love
still I did hope for a letter
wishing you would care enough

I was sixteen, you three times my age
yes I know this was insanity, outrage
but you showed me I could trust
and what love is without lust

thank you for leaving me behind
it was not mean to do, but kind
