You ran from us

by You Have My Word

I see you putting sneakers on.
I know what that means.
“Take me with you.”

You set out to meet the road.
I wonder if you’ll come back.
One day you didn’t.

They said a car hit you.
I think things fell apart.
Who was it?

You loved to run.
Sunrise to sunset.
We knew because your sneakers were gone.

You ran from us.

I put sneakers on today.
You know what that means.
I’m coming to get you.
