They Shoot Horses, Don’t They

(© R. Martin)

I saw you walking out that door
Never to return anymore
I saw you smile, and I heard you cry
As we said our very last goodbye

The years together never will we part
Always there so true and perfect in your heart
Now that you are gone all that will remain
Just a field of dreams without a name

I wish you every happiness
With success, all the best
Yet when the day is done
I can’t dismiss my emptiness

And when I think of all you’ve done
Raising every roof, lifting up the sun
We sat upon the mountain, our heads up in the sky
And gazed upon our town, all bathed in light

They Shoot Horses, Don’t They
