Miles To Go Before I Sleep - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

In the distance

the church
a tiny toy

almost covered
in snow

here my footprint
looming large

in front of me

the next step
(not yet taken)

still invisible.

    Miles to go before I sleep..and yet, that one step...not taken? Fear, pain, longing, love holding us back...the invisible hand holding our coat tails... (Report) Reply
