Walk with me until the journey's end. (Form: English Sonnet)
The path meanders through the changing wood.
The way is worn; the passage has been long.
I would not forsake this long walk if I could
for in my heart I know that I belong.
The forest path was new when first I trod
alone but with adventure in my soul.
Along the way you joined me. I thank God
for with you by my side I became whole.
The leaves have turned and autumn has arrived.
I know that winter can't be far behind.
Yet, with each step I somehow feel revived.
Each day's a blessing when hearts are entwined.
Walk with me until the journey's end.
You are my strength, my lover, and my friend.
