My Path

Life goes on
even without me in it
Does it matter, then
that I exist?

Detached from the flow
on a path without direction
No maps to guide
no other souls in sight

and the child inside of me
hides deep within
trembling
for we face the unknown
once again

Will the darkness overtake us
as it so often does
before we find shelter?

Will the elements
invade our systems
causing pain
or even death?

I comfort her as best I can
as I move up this new incline
clinging only to this - my belief
that love is the answer

that once love is found
and absorbed
we will be all right
finally able to heal the wounds
of mankind's making

for only love has the power to heal
yet it seems
I must continue my search
without an other at my side
