This is my 5th. revision. I was entering it in a secular poetry contest. It didn't meet their guidelines. It is dedicated to a friend. It should apply to anyone. I would appreciate any thoughts or comments...Dave
In Your Shoes
I know what you are going through,
Iíve been there, in your shoes.
The feeling was so frightening,
not one that I would choose.
Life leads us down some rugged paths,
decisions not well made.
The pain we live with afterwards,
a price that must be paid.
Who said it would be comfortable,
this life weíre given to live.
No pain, no gain, we often hear,
we sorrow, we forgive.
I know it doesnít feel like gain,
this turmoil you are in.
But once the waves wash over you,
the healing will begin.
Stand fast the tide is changing soon,
a new moonís overhead.
Youíll soon see silver linings as,
you gaze out from your dread.
So calm your heart, I know your pain;
thereís one thing I can do.
Iíll stand beside you as you walk,
and give a hug or two.
Iím here if you should need a guide,
in all youíre going through.
Endure the sorrow others have,
believe and you will too.
These words may sound so hollow friend,
amidst the plight youíre in.
But joy comes in the morningís light,
so let the night begin.
Please face your fears with courage and,
have hope beyond your sight.
When clouds move on, a new dayís dawn,
youíll see that all is right.
And when your storm is done and gone,
youíll look out from the shore.
Someone may need encouragement,
to help them to endure.
Youíll know exactly what to say,
a phrase that you might use.
ďI know what you are going through,
Iíve been there, in your shoes.Ē
