AFTERNOON WALK… a poem

Kevin Parish

Man, Bridge, Lonely, Walk, Wintry

It’s
not the same anymore

Yes,
the dry, Autumn leaves still crackle underfoot

And
Mother Nature plays her lullaby to her children

But
I have eyes with a different view these days

Lost
are these walks, hand in hand with the one I love

Gone
are the days of deep conversation

And
sitting upon the sun-soaked boulder

The
twilight years are truly upon me

And,
I miss you more than ever

This
used to be our afternoon walk

Yet,
the light of your eyes once full of life see no more

And
I am here to make my way – alone

You
are always and forever in my heart

But,
a heart that is heavy and broken

Until I see you again, my love, I will miss you
