A Long Walk

Self clicked

Far from home
With my spirits unscathed
I embarked upon a journey
Uphill, on a Callous road

As time elapsed
Each step brought confusion
My fatigue birthed illusion
As I struggled down the road

Then Someone joined me
A creature, selflessly
A pillar to lift my spirit
A dog shared my ordeal

Our steps synchronised
Our spirits became one
Our faces glowed with pride
And we hardly cared for summit

    Far from home,
    When we unite.
    Shared a story
    Travelled our miles..

    Far from home
    We shared the steps,
    Spirits together; filled
    Aching gaps..

        That puts a smile on a face. Thanks once again.. We shall continue to express..
        “Depths touched
        Words that blushed
        A scenery of words
        Graciously brushed”.
