As I Walk With You
17th March 2009
It’s time for me to grow.
To read, and learn
that in another two hours I could have you.
To play, and realise
monet was going away again.
Take a step, child;
watch the world swivel at your feet.
Hear the music, watch the lights;
feel the beat of a thousand hearts.
Register the emotion,
feel the air.
“Listen to the wind with me.”
I’ve put in far too much to let this pass us by.
I know which way it’s going.
The rain –
won’t come until we’re no more.
We’re a little closer now.
“We must never be apart.”
The sting of my thumb as a familiar figure
enters my thoughts and I,
in the hope I’ll see them again,
fail to notice the raindrop falling
down my windowpane.
I was so lost.
But you came along, held my hand
and showed me how..
I won’t give up.
The grass is greener on the other side.
Keep holding on.
