The Walk

Here is the poem we read yesterday that I promised to post!

The Walk

i walked for you
i put your name on my back
your soul in my heart
and i walked with others
who know
each step
each thought
each breath
each bubble sent skyward
was for you
a walk to remember
is what they call it
but
i do not need to walk to remember
i remember every minute of every day
i walked to celebrate
to thank you
to acknowledge you
to scream your name to those
who forget
i walked for you
for love
