I Mark The Road Before You - Poem by GREENWOLFE 1962

I mark the road before you,
As I do every day.
I'm sure you've never noticed
My signs along the way.

But still, I'll leave them scattered,
In hopes that you might see;
Someone has an interest,
In whom you seem to be.

The signs are just reflections,
Though altered from the start;
By timid conversations,
And then a broken heart.

They make no point of order
Against your chosen life.
Nor seek to pull you over
To be a captured wife.

They only seek to guide you
To places you've not been.
To places not considered;
Rejected, way back then.

So as I go before you,
I still must look around.
To see if you have followed
The others that I've found.

I guess that all considered,
I'll have to mark them too;
So you won't see these others,
The ones you shouldn't do.

Though only my reflections,
Mine can't lead you astray.
I'll mark the road before you,
Until my dying day.

    walking with you, then is pretty secured, as i reflect these lines below

    Though only my reflections,
    Mine can't lead you astray.
    I'll mark the road before you,
    Until my dying day.

    this is a sweet promise..
    Wolfey, you are full of wisdom, and your words shines through and through.There never was a dull moment reading your writes.
    thank you for this wonderful journey with your words so full of love and concern.God bless you..Shalom

    Hugs,
    Meggie

    This poem is an example to show to what depths of concept, thought, emotion, expression, great Greenwolf can take his poetry. Unfathomable. A real classic.

    A powerful expression of sincere love and protective caring. I can't believe I missed this one - shame on me! This is quite tender and beautifully written. Worthy of a ten (if I were able to post a vote) . Thanks for making me aware of this precious gem.
