Leave Me Behind

I am always here,
cheering you on
through it all,
good and bad.

Never second guess
how much I love you,
or wonder if I
still walk behind you.

Be stronger than Orpheus.
Resist the urge
to look back
as you press on.

Fly far and fast.
Sing free and strong.
But leave me behind
and know I’ll always be there for you.
