If You Leave by Erin Bower


If you leave,
Paint all the sunsets with the color of my eyes,
So you won't forget me when you gaze upon the sky,

If you leave,
Don't let the ocean wipe away my footprint,
So you'll be left with a memory, a melancholy hint,

If you leave,
May the tears you cry be sweetened with delight,
Mingled with healing, making your stoic eyes bright.

If you leave,
Carry on with quiet independence,
Knowing that what once was wasn't intended.

If you leave,
Keep me close in your soul,
Just return my fragile heart you swiftly stole.
