For R.L. – SD

“For R.L.”

I came upon you
A stranger,
Along this walk of mine.

You turned to chat
And pat my back
Saying, “Stroll with me a while.”

With an open heart
And honest smile
I gladly walked alongside.

We shared a laugh
And stepped in time,
A joyful, rhythmic guide.

And then you slowed,
Embraced me tight
Saying, “Now, I take my rest.”

Though I was but
A passerby
On this journey of your life,

You grasped my hand
With love in your eyes,
“My dear friend, all the best.”
