A large group of us started out walking along The Road.
We walked together for a long time.
Then someone would leave, but we continued walking.
Soon more people started leaving. Sometimes they would go together, but most times they left alone.
Now there are only a few of us left walking. Such a small group compared to when we started.
We do not walk as fast as we used to.
We take time to remember those who left us.
Often we look at each other and wonder, “Which one of us will leave next?”
