WILL YOU WALK WITH ME

VILLANELLE

Will you walk with me

Will you walk with me into the cold mist,

the unsure grey that now engulfs all,

or leave me with a love just once kissed

 

Give in to what’s written do not resist,

if we fail then better as one we fall.

Will you walk with me into the cold mist.

 

Though we see not ahead I say persist,

will you stride out with me walking tall

or leave me with a love just once kissed.

 

For fate has struck with his velvet fist

and so it is your name that I now call,

will you walk with me into the cold mist.

 

On this road will we face many a twist,

will you lie on the earth if I must crawl

or leave me with a love just once kissed.

 

It is only by your hand I know I exist,

if alone I travel, life for me will stall,

will you walk with me into the cold mist

or leave me with a love just once kissed.

    1. Thank you sir, may I in return say how profoundly moved I am by ‘Grief’s Threnody’ a truly beautiful and fitting tribute, so important I didn’t want my comment to distract from the poem’s essence.
