Walking Away 

A Thought Provoking Poem 
It is eighteen years ago, almost to the day – 
A sunny day with leaves just turning, 
The touch-lines new-ruled – since I watched you play 
Your first game of football, then, like a satellite 
Wrenched from its orbit, go drifting away 
Behind a scatter of boys. I can see 
You walking away from me towards the school 
With the pathos of a half-fledged thing set free 
Into a wilderness, the gait of one 
Who finds no path where the path should be. 
That hesitant figure, eddying away 
Like a winged seed loosened from its parent stem, Has something I never quite grasp to convey 
About nature’s give-and-take – the small, the scorching 
Ordeals which fire one’s irresolute clay. 
I have had worse partings, but none that so 
Gnaws at my mind still. Perhaps it is roughly 
Saying what God alone could perfectly show – 
How selfhood begins with a walking away, 
And love is proved in the letting go.
