The time has come to say ‘So long’,
To what has been to what has gone,
And take my life within both hands,
Then move along to newer lands.

To say goodbye to memories fond,
Break apart a heart felt bond,
To seek horizons far away,
To waken to a brighter day.

Remove the link that holds me back,
Covering me in a shroud of black,
Open up to newer skies,
See new light before my eyes.

Free from burden I will ride,
Upon a crashing, forceful tide,
A passage on to pastures new,
This time alone and not with you.
