Poem: I Walk

| By Jodi Horton

I walk

I walk with you beside me all these many years

I walk along this journey knowing it has changed

I walk listening to your footsteps, once so firm, now just a shuffle

I walk with one arm ready to catch you if you falter

I walk with one eye always watching you, safe? Scared? Lost?

I walk down this long dark road as you slowly drift away

I walk knowing I can only be there even If you no longer know me

I walk along this path of life with you because I chose

I walk because it is what you do with your soul mate

Yes I walk to try and make this terrible path in your life just a little bit easier for you

But mostly I walk because it is all I can do to be with you

I walk
