April 23, 2016 Writer's Digest April Challenge 2016/ To Walk in Your Shoes

To Walk in Your Shoes

yes             to walk a mile in your shoes                     such a lovely thought

unless      you want me to steal your shoes        take them while you are sleeping

like a thief in the night      or you want me to buy your shoes           either way

you will have no shoes      but if it is just a thought      and you want me to imagine

being in your place            wearing your shoes             it is almost as difficult

i honor you                          i honor your sorrow           yes i know sorrow

but knowing my sorrow     does not make it possible    for me to know your's

i do not presume to know    what you feel                      i offer my hand

and my heart to you             you will live                           until you are alive again
