Going, Going, Gone

Going, Going, Gone

I’m leaving home
I said defiantly
when I was four
but I stayed
I’m leaving here
I said defensively
when I was a teen
but I stayed
I’m leaving you
I said dispassionately
when I was married
and so I went

He slowly rowed the
small boat
to the middle of the lake
never saying where
he was going
Just knowing what to take

Peace and solitude
It was a favorite
way to escape
He went quietly
without a sound
his plan taking shape

No one around
to question his actions
No fear of his daughter
Hell to pay
if she only knew of
his smoke on the water
