Can I entice you to walk with me,
The road is long and the journey lonesome.
I have occasional company,
But am mostly all alone.
Most days are good and teach me poise
Others just go horribly wrong.
I yearn to hear someone else’s voice
To cut out the monotony of my song.
To laugh, to share…a shoulder maybe
To cry some and lean on at times.
I can be good company
I will regale you with tales untold
You might have to bear my silences too
For sorrows on this path abound.
There is no running away from this journey
For each one of us is destined to make.
If we walk together for a while,
Perchance it might new vistas unfold.
The weariness of this lonely road,
Will perhaps be reduced if you smile.
