The Weight

Over snowcapped, mist-enshrouded mountains

I have carried you

You could not have known

In even your loneliest of dreams

The wild and lonely vistas

I have placed before your eyes
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Through storm and lightning

I have sheltered you

Above the howling of the winds

I have listened, lest you cried

I have opened pathways long untrodden

With nothing but your spirit at my side
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have faced the bitter winter

On forsaken mountain trails

Yet, less bitter

Than the heart of one

Who strives for love

And fails ……
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And still, I have carried you with me

What else I could do, I do not know

My ever faithful Friend

The one who walks beside me

Until the bitter end

My Shadow.

The Weight
