This poem was inspired by the true story of a friend going through a divorce after four years. I could not help but feel her pain every time I spoke with her, and this is my attempt to ease her pain. If only just a little.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems - Sad Love Poems

She Walks
She walks along this lonely street
no one to dry her tears
massage her tired feet
or calm ever present fears

Seeing life through tainted heart
making everything gray
Alone, her life, anew to start
Always searching for a way

But life goes on no matter what
That fact she cannot quell
Memories ne'er to be forgot
Within her heart they dwell

So she keeps walking this lonely street
Keeps searching to find her way
Every night she lies down to sleep
And prays tomorrow's a better day
