I don’t want to leave you
I can’t leave you
So many memories lie her
So many things have happened
I met you
I fell in love with you
I fell in love with this place
I fell in love with the people
Nothing compares to this
Nothing hurts as much as leaving
I want nothing more than to be here,
To stay here with you,
To never leave your arms
Or the land that makes up this place
For my feet should stay on this ground
This is where I belong
Its unrealistic almost
That I have been able to be apart of this,
To be apart of you
I shouldn’t have to leave
What have I done wrong
To have to say goodbye
When I shouldn’t need to
When I don’t want to
This is all apart of me
It makes up who I am
Being here with you
I shouldn’t be anywhere else,
With anyone else
It is impossible to imagine
Me not being here
For nothing is the same as this
Nothing will ever be the same as this
This is different, perfect
I must not leave
I cannot leave
But when i do
Remember that no matter what
Wherever we are
This will all still be with me
You will be apart of me forever
Please don’t forget me
Just know that you mean so much to me
And i hope i mean the same to you
I will miss you
I will always love you
And everything around you.

So my family is moving and I have not been taking it very well. Where I live now is perfect, along with all the people here. I started to vent and then turned it to a poem.
