Suddenly Alone

She had her head down

Slowly shuffling along the sidewalk

She had no idea where she was going

Only that she had to get away

Away from the memories that haunt her

She briefly looked up at the street

You could see the doleful look in her eyes

She crossed the street in the same slow shuffle

And sat at the bench on the sidewalk

With a deep sigh she fought back tears

She was beyond consoling over his death

He had been her world for fifteen years

Now in a reckless moment he was gone

She felt she would forever mourn

She sat there for hours

Alone

Until the chill of the night made her shiver

Or was it him

Showing he would always be

With her
