Leaving You Behind

0


Legs running across the lawn
leaving, leaving, leaving you
behind –
startled you at first
you were afraid
my eyes were closed
squeezing you out of my life
as cars swerved
you grabbed me

I guess I never knew you
never believed you –
never listened to what you
said – or read your eyes

Inside – it was fear I carried –
but why run into traffic only
to die?
why cross a crowded street
only to die?

I remember the crowd on the
lawn, it was lunch time –
even today when I pass
this place you enter my soul

time to time I
wonder why?
