i wanted to go for a walk

i wanted to go for a walk.

to enjoy the time I had to myself,

not having to worry about anything else,

i wanted to go for a walk.

breathing in the air, so pure and clean,

observing nature, calm and serene,

i wanted to go for a walk.

a walk through the woods, nothing better,

suddenly a girl, all I did was stare at her,

i wanted to go for a walk.

she was injured it seemed, i needed to help,

but what could i do, i’m a miserable whelp,

i wanted to go for a walk.

turning around, back home i went,

after all, i was mentally spent,

i wanted to go for a walk.

turned off the lights, went to bed,

but all through the night, that girl in my head,

i wanted to go for a walk.

i woke the next day, read the paper with dread,

as i had thought some girl was found dead,

i wanted to go for a walk.

the part that is strange, the part that can’t be,

the girl that was found, was not found by me,

i wanted to go for a walk.

If I were able, I would surely cry,

But that is impossible after you die.

I should not have gone for that walk.
