“You can’t really understand another Person’s experience
until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.”

Walk A Mile In My Shoes

Can you see where I’m coming from?
Do you understand my point of view?
Why can’t you see the things that upset me?
Won’t you walk a mile in my shoes?

If you do something that bothers me
And you seem to be in denial
Should I bring up the subject with you?
Please wear my shoes for a mile

Your comments and accusations
Are thrown at me with such ease
They reach me like a sharpened knife
Won’t you walk a mile with me please?

I desperately try to plead my case
But I’ve learned to accept this abuse
Nothing I say really matters
But won’t you walk a mile in my shoes?

Our Window Of Yesterdays

Like Cinderella’s
Glass slipper

Only one pair
Had the right fit.

In life’s early years
It took time
Searching
For the right fit —
Trying on
Many different shoes
Before the music
Brought us together.

I
Slipped into you

Tying you
To my body –

Knowing
Only you
Could get so close.

We
Have walked

Many miles
Not always in step
But at the start of each day
You were there.

You
Supported each step
Through the good times
When we danced together
And the bad times
When the music stopped.

Over the years
I knew
Where we were going
You knew
Where we had been
As our
 souls
Have now worn thin —
Broken
Held together by twin
Only now expressing
The secret face
Of our enter selves.

Having been seduced
By a lover’s
Darkest kiss
No longer laced together —
Merely to be left behind
In the window
Of yesterdays
Kissed only
By tomorrow’s sun.
