A Walk Together
my favorite road.
How beautiful it was just being together again.
We shared so much together--the changing of the trees, the
falling of the leaves, but most of all ourselves.
We walked for a few minutes and then we would stop.
We talked a little and then we would walk again.
I wished that it could have been for a little longer, but you
said to me, "I have to go now."
Yes, the time went by so fast, but I understood that you had
to go back.
I watched you get into your car and I felt sad that you were leaving.
You said good-bye to me and I stood there until your car
was no longer in sight.
We will see each other someday soon and we will go for a walk
together down my favorite road again.

This Poems Story
When I was 4 years old, I was put in to an orphanage. I remained there until I was 18. I later found out that I had 1 brother and 5 sisters, some of whom I never met. They had been placed in different orphanages. After graduation, I began employment at MetLife and remained there for 31 years until I retired. My long-time friend, Kate Kobell, was the person who inspired me to start writing poems. The poem "A Walk Together" was an actual event that happened with Kate.
