The Runner

How? How can I continue to move when everything around me is crumbling?

People whom you love leave you
Sharpie though permanent can and will fade
Forgotten at the change of age
Running to them never the same
A family grows apart
A marathon I must run
If ever I want them to meet my first son
So run, love run
Outrun the nastalgia that never leaves
Outrun the love you know you need
