Your northern property line
Crosses my former identity
South 80 degrees, 17 minutes, 06 seconds West
And markers outline the boundary
To take you to the place of beginning.
However, I choose you to follow
My towpath.
For along this single width path
Overhung with decades old growth trees
Is the heartwood that few ever see.
Although there is a public road
Leading from a past certain
Cross diagonally over the bridge
To promises not yet promised.
For I have made you trustee
And keeper of the lock-box key
To the outerland that remains wild,
To a memory that is still a child.

Very nicely done

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!
