Turn and Walk Away

~Turn and Walk Away~

After shaking hands for the last time,

He slowly turned and walked away,

Knowing that another legacy was born

And another part of the present is now a part of the past.

 

On each occasion it was time to say goodbye.

Goodbye to old friends gone astray

And start a new life after leaving the always lingering

Hallways behind.

 

‘t is the day to say fare the well.

A day to cry and say goodbye to a first love.

The couple strode out of the building,

Embraced and turned to walk away.

Goodbye to the street lights that lit the paths of your hometown.

The emptiness opens its door.

Seeing visions of childhood play,

He turned and walked away.

 

And now it is time to settle down, say hello.

Find love, live life, raise a family.

He will always remember the final smiles,

The endless handshakes,

The hard times and the easy times.

They will be remembered with love.

So here’s to all of you!

Seeing visions of a life that has passed,

He turned and walked away.
