you disappeared

you disappeared
I approached you and you were gone
I couldn’t believe how fast it happened
you disappeared
up the stairs and into the night
out of my heart and out to the stars
you disappeared
I wanted you to stay but you turned me away
there is more to you than I could ever know
you disappeared
I took your hand in mine and we walked on the sand
the water washed soft over our feet and you ran
you disappeared
