If Not Mine

Goodbye my love, though this pains me to write
My best lines I can only look back to see
For then you were in my sight
And could wish you were with me.

But, now, I must sadly realize
I can only tell what I will miss
Empty lines without this prize
That would be sealed with your kiss.

That is why from the page stay away
Only the haven where hope occupy
If with me no chance you will stay
No use if with me you will not lie.

So, I should understand and let you go
And leave these pages without a line
They are only filled with the love I know
And only empty if you are not mine.
