WHEN YOU WENT AWAY

When you went away . .
We were so brokenhearted
we stumbled around

In a daze.


When you went away . .
Our lives continued
but everything changed

That day.


When you went away . .
A diaspora ensued
everybody ran

For the hills.


When you went away . .
A new chapter started
one that wasn't authored

By you.


When you went away . .
I could adjust my focus
to things that mattered

Like me.
