Leaving And Leaving You By Sophie Hannah

When I leave you postcode and your commuting station,

When I left undone all the things we planned to do

You may feel you have been left by association

But there is leaving and leaving you.

When I leave your town and the club that you belong to,

When I leave without much warning or much regret,

Remember, there’s doing wrong and there’s doing wrong to

You, which I’ll never do and I haven’t yet,

And when I have gone, remember that in weighing

Everything up, from love to a cheaper rent,

You were all the reasons I thought of staying,

And none of the reasons why I went

And although I leave your sight and I leave your setting,

And our separation is soon to be a fact,

Though you stand beside what I’m leaving and forgetting,

I’m not leaving you, not if motive makes the act.
