BY MY WAY

By my way…
I’ll pick blackberries, blueberries …
And persistence …
which i put on top of my head…
Embracing each step …
With tenderness and affection!

Not yet lacked to my feet …
Strength and obedience …
have not yet lacked to me …
Courage and joy …
Love, enchantment …
And some daring …
Also faith and spirit of help …
Always at hand …
It’s smoother the walk …
If we do not carry hate or hurt …
Inside the heart!

I lost the count…
To the laughter and tears I cried …
I lost the count
At the miles that I walked !

Looking at my bloody feet …
I almost guarantee
That I stepped over a hundred …
So many miles since I went away…
But it was worth it !
I came to meet me …
And I found you too!
