Clear, delusion

Syd Francis 1980 (Lebanon)

It's ok,
You're ok,
Just leave me here,
Day by day,
Live your life,
Without me,
Now I see; that you're ok,
Now I see; that I'm not to stay,
All the thing that I had to say,
Mean nothing to you,
Now that you're ok,
To live your life;
While the thought remains,
That the one for you,
Is a long way away.

    I think, you mistakenly wrote the description of the poem in the poem section itself and vice versa.
