Time for Goodbye

It’s time
Time to bid goodbye
To something so familiar
That I thought I wouldn’t know
A life without it

Like an old piece of clothing
Tatty but comfortable
Feels as if part of my skin
But it’s not
And it doesn’t protect me anymore

So, I’m finally ready
To let you go
On this sunny autumn day
As the geese call and
Fly to the South

You don’t have to worry
About me forgetting anything
Because I won’t
The thing you wanted to protect
Will always be safe with me
