I Walk Alone


It has been a long, hard road

With many miles walked alone

Bearing the weight of the world

On tired and weary bones


Looking at my past

To the ones that I held dear

Two set of footprints in the sand

Till one set disappears


Love has come and gone

Though promises always made

I had hoped you’d be my sun

But I am left here in the shade


What of the next sunrise

Dawn beaming in all its glory

When I fear it will not last

To be the end of my story


It is hard to see a future

Unlike the past I have known

And therein lies the greatest fear

That I am destined to be alone


But if that is what fate dictates

I, left the lonely man

Then I must make the best of it

One set of footprints in the sand

    You have always had a way of tugging at my heartstrings with your hauntingly beautiful verses.

  3. I was all set to comment about the melancholy sense from these words… until I scrolled through all of the comments and imagined your vocal Tarzan call, and then I was laughing and smiling too much!

  4. Beautiful verses! Brilliant work 👏 my brother!

    I really don’t know how you do it. Each piece of writing better that the last. Keeps getting better. I am baffled as to which poem of yours I like the most. I can’t decide because they are all so good.
