Thank you for 

the favor

of pushing me away. 

 

For helping me see 

the price of loving you 

is too high to pay.

I hope to repay 

the favor 

someday.

Did you not my trust my ways?

My reflection is maimed,

The hope you did deflate,

The energy fades,

The Light of Heaven diverts away,

I guess I’ll have to wait,

 

The urgent message on delayed flight,

The r...
