I know I need to set you free
but it’s like chopping off a part of me
not to see the beauty of your smile
hear you share the latest goss awhile

on spreading wings you’ve flown away
tentatively at first phone calls every day
prolong the agony of losing you
keep painful wounds ever new

my total life for so long
now concluded ended gone
gasp for air cannot breathe
heart soul and mind all grieve

my final act must be
smile encourage bless set free
hoping you’ll return again
stronger surer wiser
my lovely Bobbi-Jane
