Banish the Follower

I left you in the valley
The one I climbed out of
But you did not stay there
You’ve followed me
Mostly in silence
Just slightly behind
With an occasional whisper
Reminding me of your existence
Now you’ve caught up
You want a face to face
And though I wish to forget
I know that this must happen
So that I can let you fade away
Permanently into the ether
For better things to replace
With this deep breath I suck in
I’m ready for this conversation
To clear you from my tracks
To step forward gently
With a peaceful heart
At the lessons that you gave
