Walk Away

It's Saturday! I had an unusually playful feeling this morning, not like the past few days. I took an early bath and a steaming cup of freshly brewed coffee.

Then I began playing a few chords in the piano while humming to a song that's been playing in my head all night. I remember writing the first stanza to this song several years ago. I just added a chorus and second stanza today. But my fingers froze in the early morning mist. Here is...

           "Walk Away"

When I looked back
I saw you standing there
So near, your eyes seem to tell me so—
I tried to get closer,
Reached out to touch you
But then you were gone

(So I) I turned around
I was tryin' to find you—
But felt only tears here in my eyes
You know how it hurts me so
To walk away from you
Do we really have to learn this word
And try to hide the pain it can bring?
But, tell me, we never meant forever
To say goodbye.
Letting go doesn’t mean giving up, but rather accepting that there are things that can't be … at the time.
