They walked across the path

With his hand tearing at her heart

Tears trickled down her face

As they were nearing the break

Falling slowly into a shallow stream

Knowing now his love was just a dream

And as she woke up to reality

It brought such a sad finality

He kissed her on the forehead

And whispered goodbye..

“At least we tried”

She could not speak

For her body went weak

He released her and stepped back

Turned around and left

She looked up and he was gone

She stood for a moment just thinking

And made her way back across the path

With a broken heart

Unable to beat

And restart
