I gaze into his eyes
like I have so many times
knowing fully that this time
will be the very last

Tears fill my eyes
and I reach for him
I want him to hold me
to tell me he loves me

He just stares at me
and the love that
used to fill his eyes
is now replaced with pity

He pauses for a moment
and my heart stops
and I pray to God
that he has changed his mind

but all he does
is walk away
taking my heart and my life
with him
