Dead Man's Walk - Poem by Shahid H Khan

I left my home today
And left it for ever;
Like a dead man walks to his grave
To come back never.

The pain and agony
That you heaped on me;
I shall carry to my grave
As if it was my destiny.

Never shall I wish you harm,
Nor bear ill-will;
You will live for ever in my heart
Like a candle lit in storm.

My wife, after thirty years of marriage, wants to divorce me saying that she never loved me. I imagined myself leaving home and these are the thoughts that came to my mind.
