Ropes Will Turn To Gold (revised)


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
secrets

I always allowed you to
jump first

as in the days of yore

remaining behind to make
adjustments

someday these ropes will
turn to gold.

Before we grow old and die.
