Taking the Journey Onward

Updated on September 13, 2019

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

There was a bright colored rainbow,

across the sky the day we met,

it has not been long my friend –

but sunny skies have turned to gray.

Yet, through it all we must smile,

for tears only mist the yesteryears,

we still have each other,

my heart, your heart still go on.

Remember the happy days,

the emotions, inspiration shared.

Now I stand at the crossroads,

my hand outstretched,

looking back at the footprints we have made,

come take my hand

and journey onward with me.


This latter part of our journey,

will bring back many golden memories,

we’ll remember the laughter and the tears.

Our love will keep us together,

because leaning on one another,

will give us the strength,

to face what is around the bend.

I know that someday,

our footprints will begin to fade away,

it will be like the toss of the dice,

which one of us will have to stay,

the other to fly away.

One of us will continue this journey,

the other waiting on the threshold,

always remembering the days that shone the brightest –

always remembering the love and the hand that we held.

      Traveling through life is a mixture of happiness and strife, your poem conveyed that beautifully.

      Such a lovely piece of work - remembering and letting go. I love the line 'our footprints will begin to fade away' - poignantly written.
