For Your Sake

I skipped a flattened stone

Up on nearly static lake

The memories rippling quietly

I came here for your sake

I remember when the two of us

Would play on the rocky shores

Whispering long-lost secrets

It seemed like we wanted nothing more

Then the day came

It was time for you to leave

And as I watched you slowly walk away

I felt obliged to grieve

For what I lost was something deep

Something that I couldn't admit

And for your sake and your sake alone

That is something I will omit
