Ropes Will Turn To Gold (Revised) - Poem by Heather Burns

Oh friend!

Last night while searching
the canyons of my mind

once again expecting
you to play double dutch

two small children
together laughing telling

I always allowed you to
jump first

as in the days of yore

remaining behind to make

someday these ropes will
turn to gold.

    Ropes that bind
    hold thoughts devine
    what was a game to time
    turns forever more than gold of mind (Report) Reply
