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.
