Silent Steps


Silent Steps

Miles are between us, there is naught one step towards or from I can't recall,
The pure joy, the angst; the love and laughter; betrayal or trust, we had it all;
Were it possible to lay my fingers upon your check to soothe the stress away,
Or to gently stroke your forearm to relax the angst or pull of the day;
There are days under dark, ominous clouds that both warms and chills as one,
As a fireside that warmed our hearts and souls, or pathways in the sun;
Recalling walks while sharing the sunlight dancing within a crystal spring thaw,
Captured within the rare moments of silent communication to oft recall;
The shadow of your face reveals to heed your call, as if need me there,
I can only dispatch that my loving spirit remains forever in your care;
Yes, distance between us, yet the shadows follow along the path,
Echoes of the past to sate and silent steps that track us back.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
