The Sun Will Shine On Your Face

Suspended improbably on shoulders
Hunched by years of glacial attrition
And threaded through a forest of boulders:
The path that holds the key to my mission
I speak allegorically, because
This tortured path has ne’er been seen before
And every rock is a problem that was
And every chasm is an open sore
Each footstep will demand its pound of pain
The raven keeps score of the promises
But I will endure until I unchain
The bright drops from the dark cloud’s surfaces

    And refract the light from the Sun, to send
    To the Heart of Gold at the Rainbow’s end ~

    Nice to see more complex end rhyme. I'm always unsure about the punctuationsat the end of the lines.

    Beautiful soul, amazing heart, that any lady should take such a part, is a lucky lady, yes, lucky indeed, and this precious sonnet could make a heart bleed. You treasured Englishman from Tuscany, These teary eyes, I'm glad you can't see, for, your words are sweet and make me cry, with truth and hope that make me fly... Love your friend, who always smiles when she thinks of you, Christie
