Destination Unknown - Poem by Chris Boyles

She made her farewells to all that she knew
this journey she felt was the right thing to do.
For no longer pain could her heart withstand
comfort and love she would never demand.
Her mind was made up no-one could change
alone this final journey she sadly did arrange.
The destination she would not to any reveal
no new address to share that was her deal.
Her new home would be peaceful for sure
weeping she turned to finally lock the door.
No door again would she ever need unlock
not a door to answer if someone did knock.
A ring she would not hear from the phone
no more would she feel this lost and alone.
Not a care in the world or bills ever to pay
or words unwritten only her heart could say.
To be strong and fight had become a chore
weak and broken could not take any more.
Her journey begun to destination unknown
walking away now leaving all she did own.
The snow it fluttered under the new moon
frost was biting she would not feel it soon.
How could one be driven to such extremes
how could one live a life just full of dreams.
She arrived where time she loved to spend
where her feelings she would go to mend.
Many tears did she shed here in this place
not again would they trickle down her face.
She looked up towards the dark night sky
as her last step she took and one last sigh.
She felt strong arms taking her finally home
her empty body afloat on the sea did roam.
Her destination would always be unknown
missed she was by few her soul now flown.
