Walk for a while…

Walk with me for a while
on this trail
worn by the tired feet
of those who passed this way
before me.
Hum along
to the melody of sweet joy
that’s soothed souls
as well as melancholy.

Sway alongside the winds
that threaten to whisk you
from the path of dreams
dreamt with your eyes open.
Stoke the fire of desire
to rise after every fall
despite falling
a thousand times over.

Walk with me for a while
on this sojourn
of ups and downs. Let’s walk,
for we can only do so
for a while.
