I tried to reach out to you, even tho
my heart was filled with so much pain.
My tears flowed down both cheeks
flooding this soul with cold inner rain.
As you walked away, I stood there in fear
not saying what I wanted to say.
What will become of me
without you by my side day after day?
The years we shared were tossed in the wind
like leaves on that fall day.
You never looked back
you were lost in thoughts that would not stray.
Were you looking for a life
with new and greater things to see?
Had you thought about this day,
thought of it many times without me?
My heart sunk into a bottomless pit
as you vanished from my sight.
Turning that day I also did not look back,
somehow knowing, I to would be all right.
