I walk along a flowing stream
...so small it has no name,
No footprints in the sand ahead
...and none from whence I came.

On distant hill the columbine,
...beneath the setting sun,
Many miles I've walked alone,
...soon will the day be done.

Up ahead a spreading oak
...lies just beyond the bend,
With weary legs I seek its shade,
...my journey will then end.

Beneath the boughs of beauteous tree
...she lies in peaceful sleep,
I placed her there so long ago,
...so God would ever keep.

I made a bed amongst the leaves,
...and lay her gently there,
Held her close in love's embrace,
...last touched her silken hair.

A nameless stream flows down the hill
...beside majestic tree,
Beneath its boughs we sleep tonight,
...for all eternity.

Walt, I really appreciate the comment.
having read your poems and posts, I take your remark as one of the best compliments I have received as I know it is truly heartfelt.
Sue, at least not in the foreseeable future.
