They Try To Love You But You Slip Away

You are adored.
You turn every head.
People notice you.
You brighten their eyes,
And widen their smiles.
You’re the one they want
To keep.

But you drift
Between people and places.
You’re a dreamer,
A wanderer.
A wonderer,
A wonder.

Do you know your own heart?
Try to understand the hearts
Of others.
How many times 
Will a person love you?
How many times will you 

Slip away?

(Title from ‘Slip Away’ by Jonathan Byrd)
