Merriement #15

For the love of shoes.
I opened the closet and walked on in
my foot hit something that had fallen from its bin.
An old pair of shoes~ wrinkled and worn,
lay out on the floor reminding me of a long lost friend.
Quite a story old shoes can tell
where we've gone ~ a life that's been lived well.
Oh, I know that some folks
don't care about the past,
only the present ~ 'cause times are just too fast.

But old shoes go slow
with memories from so long ago
of times good and bad
smiles and tears
of things happy and sad.

At times we struggle in life to find
a place of happiness, peace and a companion to be kind.
Old shoes are with us every step of the way
through good times and bad
bright days and sad.

Old shoes are like friends, they stay around
in good times and bad,
they are really quite sound.
Old shoes are like good friends
you don't throw away
just tuck them back
and bring them out another day.

Old Shoe Blessings to All!
