You Go Ahead On

You go on to that meeting,

I’ll stay here with the baby.

You go ahead on to work,

I’ll stay here with the children.

You go ahead on to the Y,

I’ll stay here with the laundry.

You go ahead on to that race,

I’ll stay here with the sick one.

You go ahead on to church,

I’ll stay here with these dishes.

You go ahead on with what you’re doing,

I’ll stay here with the weeds.

You go ahead on on that trip,

I’ll stay here with the dogs.

You go ahead on and on and on,

I may be here, but I’m all ready gone.

  1. “all ready gone” – I’ve never seen it written like this before! How perfectly expressive of your readiness and your direction!
