{day one}

the poem


i spoke today a thousand words
and cried a hundred more.
you walked away without a why
as a bird who could not fly.
the mountains saved my waning spirit
then the river helped to clear it
softened by the washing tide
i held you, by my side
love lead me to the opened space
where quiet beauty, became my place
you helped to see the ways of time
through this long, lonely, journey of mine
