Gone Away

I am gone,
Yet I was here.
You are sitting,
Where I was near.
I slept in this bed,
I sat in that chair.
And though I'm not present,
I breathed this air.
I stayed in this room,
Yet left no trace.
I have now moved on,
To a different place.
No one knows,
Where that may be.
Our paths may cross,
Lets wait and see...

That's really cool how you leave your poem in hotel rooms. I hope I see it one day! When I stay in hotels, I like to leave a note to the people who clean the room just to say thank you.

I totally love your writing style! You know, if I found this poem somewhere, I'd find it kinda creepy and stalker-ish, haha. But I do like it and it's very well-written. Totally admirable (:

This is really neat :]
I love the idea of leaving mysterious things behind for people to find.
It brings a joy to mind you can't explain.
A friend of mine likes leaving fortune cookie fortunes for her waiters when she eats out.
