Lonely path

I walk a lonely path carefully holding my heart
my mind floats above and I have no feet to feel the sand beneath
there they are physical and over there they are spirit and I am in-between
the dim valley is behind now
and the bright mountain mist has filled my eyes with tears
long ago friends wait only a short distance ahead
another step and my heart will return to it’s proper place
but then I would only turn back to continue the lonely path
so with a smile my eyes wait to see that you have reached my side
