I followed in their footsteps

I hid amongst their shadows

I did not stand

As you once stood

But marched within their band

I did not speak

So was not heard

Though deep within my soul

I saw you watch

I knew you knew

The coward I fashioned as I grew

And greet me now

I beg don’t forgive

I am through

I’ll join and watch with you

As on the earthly plain

Man stains eternity’s copy-book

Listening in the dark beyond

Seeing all I do

As each and every breaking dawn

I here remain without you

So very far along this trail I’ve trod

And there beside my life’s long trek

Abandoned dreams and wishes stack

You reach for me and know not how

As you could not touch me in life

You cannot touch me now

In misdemeanours many

You embraced the life that you once bled

Yet fear and dread are mine instead

Within this empty heart of your making

I sense you in the far beyond

With each of my remorse’s

And once more your heart is breaking

But as in life pain does gain

So in death pain will stain

On a tall ship with masts a flutter

I sail into treacherous water

The rocks below me hidden

The eddy’s full and whip

On the helm I lose my grip

Sinking now, but numb

I remember what you were and are to me.

This is very sad my friend, well written.

On a tall ship with masts a flutter

I sail into treacherous water

The rocks below me hidden

The eddy’s full and whip

On the helm I lose my grip

Sinking now, but numb

I remember what you were and are to me.

I sense great loss, or perhaps I read into it. The above is something I have experienced more than a few times in my life, yet I continue.

Peace

Mark

okay ... I can't help it ... in expressing you are hiding more ....... I don't recommend you continuing it , it blocks you off in the long run

I like the effort ... I'm just an idiot when it comes to things like this ... :lol:

~edit : the idiot that I am

Misty your poem strikes a chord and makes me a little bit sad.

Very well done and I hope you know how much others care.
