Let God walk side by side with me…

i didn’t expect it to begin
to creep inside this shell
a recital of notes flipflopping
an old saw with rusty teeth
ready to grind an opening

dusty papers yellowed by time
bullied by the tentacles of blue years
a face of reality now in the running
marching in the open without fears
braver and stronger with a love burning

past love i let slip from memory
consigned to oblivion i let it fly free
a new dawn of love waiting just for me
a new chance to roll the dice and venture again
and let God walk side by side with me…
