“Walk Away”

May all your memorable moments
be many and grand
but may you remember
that one special time
when we broke all the bonds,
the shackles and chains
and spat in the face
of society’s aims
and that feeling of freedom
as we lived for ourselves,
not for others
in their life in a shell.

If parting is such sweet sorrow
why do I feel this way?
Perhaps because we never parted;
you simply walked away.
