Survival

 
I focused on survival,
it was the only way,
the pair of us were doomed;
your vacant eyes displayed.
Directionless I staggered on,
my heart in helpless grief,
to find a place to fall and stay;
to find the time to weep. 

Focused; adjective: Directing a great deal of attention, interest, or activity towards a particular aim.
