Vale of tears

snow rose

Shards of naivety strew the path
Calloused feet, weary and wary,
Sliced by broken dreams
And shattered rainbows
Trudge onward,
Leaving bloody traces
In the innocence
Of a martyred dream.
Those who cross the vale of tears
Come not again so lightly
But tread with care
Preserving solitude
Against the pain
Of other feet they cannot heal
With words or touch
Offering their footprints
Scarlet on white
To guide their steps
To the Beginning.

    Touching,the emotion aroused is like palpable.Brings to mind memories of a friend I never met and cannot meet again in physical form.This is share emotional caress like the gentle smooth touch of a baby’s innocent hands.merci tres bien.
