God Be With You


By George J. Dance

You tell me that you're leaving me today:
You've met the man you want. He wants you, too;
He's taking you, not far, but still away,
And I'm afraid there's nothing I can do.

That's what I get for trying to love two:
You need a greater passion in your life,
As strong and pure as that which comes from you,
The kind that he will show to you, his wife;

So go, my daughter, go to your new man.
I still can love you; you will still love me.
I'll be there for you, as and when I can,
To find, in time, that I am loving three,

And I am sure I'll soon be loving four:
Love opens arms to bring in more, and more.

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.
