Answer at the Till

What would it be like to walk away
To leave all that you have
Taking nothing with you
Save the clothes on your back

What would it be like to leave
Without saying goodbye
Vanishing in the night
No letter left behind

What would it be like to cry
Watching all you love
Get washed away
No stone left of the foundation

What would it be like to give up
All that makes me, me
Let go of my breath
Memory all that’s left behind

What would it be like to die
To leave all that you know
Entering a world you don’t
Except when you realize

You do

What would it be like to see others
You’d barely known in life
Chatting and visiting
Seeing them again

What would it be like to know
You gave it your best
Your life not just for show
The body gave in first

What would it be like to smile
Hands clasped together again
Long-lost best friend
By your side again

But only if you kept true to your word.

The Spirit was willing,
But the Body was weak,
Or what if the Body was willing,
But the Spirit was weak?

Only you can answer at the till.
