The road of life


the road

I knew you when the road of life began

and hand in hand we struggled to explore

the twisted turns, the ruts along the way,

lost, alone, the sunset colors poured.


I knew you when we shivered at the trees

as night befell the helpless, stranded there,

and whimpered when the sunrise rescued we,

the ones embracing life so unprepared.


When dusk again descends upon our way

together we will stand against the night

until the road of life begins to fade

and, finally, we walk into the light.
