Gravel Road

Sweet darling, I'm grateful  For the sundowns we shared.  I cannot shepherd you 'til the end

Gravel Road is a poem written by Kevin Rein and shared with The Ugly Writers under the theme Of Love and War for February

You said goodbye, 

I wept. 

I wiped my tears, 

You left.

The path you’re leading 

May take you somewhere better,

And I’m here staying, 

Might be stuck forever.

Sweet darling, I’m grateful 

For the sundowns we shared. 

I cannot shepherd you ’til the end, 

But I hope to meet you again.

Six feet may be near, 

But underground will be far. 

And when I breathe my last, 

May you carry away my heart.
