When I Am Needed

Sun, moon and stars above
Whispering winds and gentle breezes
Only here when I am needed
I am your friend and healer for a time
Teaching you your way to find
Even in my heart you will be
To leave one day and move on from me
Never to have you for more than a season
Alone I will be and alone I will remain
To move you onward down your path again
In the shadows of your memory I will be
Simply your stories to tell of me
In my heart there is a yearning
But from this path there is no turning
To know you beyond the time of your healing
Would be giving in to the pleasure of feeling
A path of which will not be heeded
Because I am here only when needed
Maybe one day with a fondness of smile
You will remember me and reminisce for awhile
This path you walk is not mine to share
In fondness and love I leave you there
