"In the Path of Love"


"DeltaBluez Tess"
(July 13, 1998 - Feb 13, 2013)
by Diane Pagel

In the shadows of life.
a few leaves must fall
but the spring is near
and life will grow again.
The path is long and hard
and courage is earned
the sunlight is in our eyes
and the tears freely fall.

You walked down the path
held my hand, taught me all
to let me go by myself
with my new courage.

and yet today I weep for you
but tomorrow i will be proud
knowing you are at the end of the path
and the rest of the journey is my own.
