Along the Sidewalk

Along the sidewalk
I walk alone,
I count my steps
Till I reach home.

Through the night
Breezes are colder,
The moon is bright
But cannot solder.

To my scarf I cleave
The way I clove
To my mother’s sleeve
When there was love.

I miss the cradle
That healed my heart
Before I failed
To aim the dart.

I wish I could
Bring back the hope
That filled childhood
As I jumped rope.

For now to sword
I am being put,
Supplicating the Lord
I cry in grief.

Let my body
Immerse in heat
Or the invincible
Shall I defeat?
