We Always Walked Together

We Always Walked Together

We always walked together, on the rocky road of life,
Quick on our feet, our senses sharp as a knife.

Through the thick and the thin, together we would stand,
Ready to take on anything, as we walked hand in hand.

I often feel so helpless - as you are so far away,
Until we are together again - time grows shorter every day.

And as I'm walking along the road of life, now I stand alone,
I know that I am missing something, like a dog without a bone.

I need you more than ever, as my road is getting rough,
And though you think I have a lot, it isn't quite enough.
