I believed
That you did
You really did
You did love  me.

No  idea
You didn’t care.

Plans to leave
Set in motion
No response
No emotion.

By myself
Now abandoned 
Set adrift
Feeling stranded.

Looking on
You walked out
Now you’re gone.

Years of wonder 
Left in shock
I watched the clock.

Days to weeks
Months to years
Left with sorrow
Left in tears.
