Across Galaxies

I passed beneath the bridge today close by the place you once called home, and I sensed your latent footprints still lingering upon the stone. I wonder . . . did you pass that way, mysteriously, in the night, as guardian angels carried you across the galaxies toward light? Faye Lanham Gibson Copyright, July 24, 2014

Thank you, Connie. My son has been dead for eight years now, but I have just recently been able to write anything about it.

Thank you, Dave...I went under the bridge close to where my son lived. He used to walk home from work across that bridge. I thought about his footprints still lying there.
