About the Poem
This poem was inspired by the true story of a friend going through a divorce after four years. I could not help but feel her pain every time I spoke with her, and this is my attempt to ease her pain. If only just a little.

|She walks along this lonely street
no one to dry her tears
massage her tired feet
or calm ever present fears
Seeing life through tainted heart
making everything gray
Alone, her life, anew to start
Always searching for a way
But life goes on no matter what
That fact she cannot quell
Memories ne'er to be forgot
Within her heart they dwell
So she keeps walking this lonely street
Keeps searching to find her way
Every night she lies down to sleep
And prays tomorrow's a better day
