Lot's Wife

His last words to me were “walk away and don’t look back”
As if I would turn into a pillar of salt
Without turning around
Pillars of salt lined my cheeks
But I take those tears
And preserve my memories until he returns
To make a new batch
He’ll be in harm’s way
I’ll be safely in my home
Wondering if he’s ok
But this is what I signed up for
This life of having to walk away for way to long
Can’t look back when we part ways
Otherwise the salt comes again

I welled up a little thinking of his last words to me. But that's what inspired this.
