On The Pilgrim Road With Elaine - Poem by David McLansky

On the Pilgrim Road with Elaine

Much faithless love have I known
On random highways have I roamed
Seeking in the coldest hearts
The trust that plays a mother’s Art;
And consequentially I have been battered,
My dreams and hopes, cruelly shattered;
Dazed and bruised I paused to rise,
The one I loved with proof despised;
This for me was a pattern;
Did war-like Mars not seek out Saturn?
What point did my behavior make,
That all eyes that beckon are all fake?

But you’ve been faithful from the start,
A companion on my buckboard cart,
Jostled on the Pilgrim Road,
The stars a canopy for our abode;
You have been my dearest friend,
Faithful as my journey ends;
The wagon’s jostled by a stone,
Into your shoulder I am thrown,
You smile as gently you flick the reins;
A pearl mist masks the rock strewn terrain

    Oh my friend, you bring me to a special place!
    I am in awe of your art, your gift... your heart.
    There is so much you have given me and taught me over the years, even though it is across the miles
    I cherish your friendship and the joy it has brought me.
    When I think of you, I am happy. You are my treasure!
    Much love
