Because I Love You

I walked home barefoot
after tucking you in
and locking your door

the sidewalk was wet
uneven in places
warm while crossing
the road

periodically rubbing
rocks out of my soul

I had an answer
prepaired if anyone
were to ask
why I was walking

I hope when you find
my shoes
in your livingroom
you understand

I wished you
could have felt
the sidewalk
