Left Behind

Left Behind

I stare down the road
Watching the form
of your being
Getting so far away
I reach out a hand
But it doesn’t matter
You can’t see it

Once we walked down the same path
At the same pace
Side by side
When did you leave me?
Why?
Surely this is not my fault
I never wanted this

I’m still walking
Slower now
But there’s no way around it
I’ll letting go
And moving on
Sorry love but
You just fell too far behind me
