We walked down the road apiece
You and I
Touching shoulders, entwining lives
Good times and bad
Our lots we shared
As we walked down the road apiece.
Now down the road I walk alone
No shoulder touching mine
Our ways parted at the fork
Separate roads to walk
You to travel lands unknown
Me still to trod the earth’s terrain.
I loved you while we walked together
I love you now, though you’re not here
Of the road we shared
Remembering this brings thoughts of joy
And memories of tears.
To know as only I can know
To bear my cares alone
Sans sweet sounds of your footfalls
As I walk down the road apiece
