Leaving Happy Memories

I know not where this path will terminate
The number of steps that I have left
But I ask that you hold my hand and my heart
Each footfall along the way
For I don’t have the option
To climb aboard the boomerang
And come back this way
Once gone the day is past
Only revived in memories
This journey is terminal
All that I can leave
And all that I can take
Are snippets of joy
Acts of kindness and love
Moments of laughter
And a smile when you remember me
Only tinted slightly
With the sadness of longing
