I Walk Away
Walking away- I have done so many times,
and I am left with memories that live in my rhymes;
oh, at funerals I have turned and walked away,
while my beloved lay with the flowers that decay.
I walked away from my beloved with tears,
yet, I go to cold tombs no matter how many years;
and I have walked away from my beloved pets,
putting my dearly loved in the hands of vets.
Walking away- is something I seem to do well,
but the pain of this turning away is my living hell;
this is a deep sorrow that no one ever forgets,
but loving is something no one ever regrets.
So when the dead are put to rest, I walk away,
but locked in my heart they will forever stay.
