As I walk

As I walk - stones knick, cut, and gnash at my trodded feet 

creating scars from the miles I have walked for you

A road where stones know not the smoothness of friendly steps

My legs - bowed from carrying the weight, in the strong of my back

you couldn't seem to bear

Your strength gave out it was I who gave you mine

Tho' they mocked you - To sleep I rocked you

They jeered you - It was I who cheered you

When you were discouraged - I encouraged you

Yet, the soles of your feet remain unscathed for they are but  

a stranger to this road I've trod for you
