A Soft Farewell

by Princess Ruto

I don't know how I can tell
But I already know what's wrong
Our guardian is dead
But it wasn't your fault
Though Mido claims it is
You walk towards the bridge I stand on
Willing to risk your life
To avenge the tree's death
You look at me
With deep indigo eyes
Whispering a soft farewell
That finds it's way
Into my childish heart
I smile at your boyish grin
Your adventurous spirit
And the treasure I clasp in my hand
Somehow finds it's way to yours
You admire it in awe
Then turn your back
On the dense lush forest
On your old life
On me
Leaving me
Whispering a soft farewell
Into the passing breeze
