Remember when we took that walk, 

and our pup and your fishing pole tagged along…

I snapped pictures to find new inspiration, while you casted for food to fill our bellies. 

I left with more thoughts to cloud my mind, while you left with empty hands.

The whole point was to fill our hearts with simple memories of time spent together,

But no matter what you say, even if you say every word I’d like to hear, it wouldn’t matter. 

I wouldn’t believe you. 

Part of me feels guilty for this, and feeling guilty builds resentment.  

You see, I shouldn’t always have to be the one to ask to take that walk…

One day, maybe, you’ll ask me instead. 

Then, you might catch a smile sneak on my face for no reason, other than in that moment,

 I’ll finally start to believe again…
