They Didn’t Stay

They Didn’t Stay


Buy me first 😏

They didn’t,
Not when their eyes opened,
When they saw greener fields.
Not when they heard the sounds of streams.
The water trickling with purity and clarity.
They didn’t stay on this side of us,
and they never carried us to the other.

They didn’t!
They heard a higher call.
To do more and get more yields from the fields.
They felt special and erased us from their hearts.
First the trash can, then burnt forever.
They didn’t stay on this side of us.
and they never invited us to the other.

They left,
Faster than they came, in all secrecy.
They faded more than snow in the sun.
They had a new purpose, a new work.
A moment with us, and gone in the next.
They didn’t stay on this side of us.
and they never invited us to the next.
