On Parting

I may look dumb just smiling and nodding
but if I try to talk I'll only cry
After all the words that have been shared between us
at this time of truth I suddenly feel shy.

Maybe if you knew how much I'll miss you
if you knew how hard it is for me to leave
Then maybe you'd hold on a little tighter
and find just one more thing to say to me.

I know this parting moment has to happen
I only wish it wouldn't come so fast
The only thing to do is end it quickly --
it's the good times, not the pain, I wish would last.


Maybe if you knew how much I love you
if you knew how much it hurts to see you leave
Then perhaps you'd turn away a little slower
and leave a little more of you with me...

It is so hard to leave when u dont know when u will be back. I too wish i had a little bit of Yerusalyim and ErezYisroel that i could take with me and keep in my pocket. May we all be zocher to return there with Mashiach b'korov.

Really great.
Reminds me of a song, someone in my class presented today for my music class. Its called Seize the day. He said he also taught it to his 5th grade class, because of the importance in the message. To not let opportunities slip by, but to make the most of every day.

Are you familiar with the poetry of Ruth Lewis in the book "Memo to Self"? I think you would very much appreciate this great book. I posted a couple of the poems here:
