I always wondered why you walked away.
You leave the ones you say you love
And just went on your way.
Never thought to say good bye
Or to check or even call
Each day I get angrier as I watch
The leaves fall.
People say be strong, but how strong can I be.
When you left me alone to walk
Those lonely streets.
You tell me to forgive and learn
To let things go.
But how can you forgive when you
Don’t know where to go.
When you walked away it tore a hole in me.
But ever since that happened
You only strengthened
