If You really must go
let me at least say
it’s made a difference
knowing You
walking with You
learning from You,
so thank You for that.
It’s meant the world to me
but more than that —
You’ve changed me
with Your generosity
of time, of humanness,
of loving recognition.
I’ve not always shown it
perfectly (sometimes
not at all) but
because of You
I’ve grown,
because of You
I’m trying to be
more of who I am
without reservation
with unrestrained joy.
I know You know
how I dislike change
but I wouldn’t
turn back time or
return to what was;
where You’ve brought me
is amazing (also hard,
for the record) but
because of You.
So if You really must go
let me at least say
thank You.
