I chose to go down the path of fight
But instead I went down the path of light.
Her auburn hair, her dimpled cheeks
Her smile never gave me creeps.
It brought me comfort as it made her shine.
Her eyes were ones that were very wide.
Her glowing gray orbs showed the way
Down that path that I will betray.
Once it ended, I looked up to her.
Her crying tears made her vision blur.
I asked if she was scared, it seemed rather odd.
She reached out to me and said "I'm not."
It all made sense, then and there.
I had a heart, which was never spared.
I left her that day, bewildered one as it is.
I'll never forget her, the one who was not afraid.
The one who wanted me to stay.
