Keep Going

We were friends

there for each other

again and again

helping one another.

Until the day

you went away

and your departure

left a mark

on my tender heart.

But life isn’t slowing

so I will pick myself up,

dust myself off,

and keep going.

 

Things were said

in our small community

gossip fed

on bits and pieces of me.

Until the day

the news came my way

and I heard it all.

That left a mark

on my tender heart.

But life isn’t slowing

so I will pick myself up,

dust myself off,

and keep going.

 

I’m getting tough

even though I’m not

I’m learning about love

and that it’s more than a thought.

Looking for the day

when it will all go away

and I no longer have that mark

on my tender heart.

Because life isn’t slowing

so I will pick myself up,

dust myself off,

and keep going.
