Slowly, she pulled away her hands from his,
Turned around and started walking away.
Those moments stretched on like eons for him,
As he watched her walk. Silently pleading,
For her to turn back once. To run back into his arms,
He looked on. Willing her to turn back,
All the time praying for her to be given back to him
She walked. Slowly, holding her head high,
Not letting him see the tears that fell like rain,
This is best for him. She kept telling herself.
And she walked, The toughest walk of her life.
The moments spent together flashed across,
The pain tore through her heart, Instinctively, she turned,
Eyes met, and they smiled, through their tears.
