I Walk Alone

Here, as I wander
Many roads, many paths
All one shall see
Is I walk alone

She appeared, like a dream
Like the mist of night
Or the fog of morning light
But I swear she was there

I reached to touch
The sweet taste of what was
I longed for the past
Yesterday, when dreams were dreams

I could smell the fragrance
The smell of morning lily’s
One could taste even the air
And feel the suns grasp of the day 

Such desires burn deep
Within our souls, should one believe
Or so I have been told
As a withering candle, my desires have faded

Tears, oh the tears have faded
The heart grows, only in  the desires for thing past
And yet the heart, sands of time, becomes a desert
The music still plays, and I still walk

    Very absorbing and heartbreakingly beautiful. If I was around the time this was posted, I may have gone nuts due to its greatness.

    Hi Arthur, an excellent write. I walk alone, we have all said that sometime In our lives but sooner or later we find this Is always not so. Someone always walks with us. So gently each vision flows Into the next as you paint your canvas, and what a canvas you do paint. One thing Arthur, with writes like this you shall never walk alone here. Thoroughly enjoyed the read. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    '...the sun's grasp of the day,' '...yet the heart...becomes a desert,' such emotional phrasing. Wistful, sorrowful, exceptional! Best wishes, Keith
