“One More Step” slings & arrows

 

 

I couldn’t ask for a better friend
you are my balance
my vision
my search engine
my song
I see your streets ahead of me

Just one more step
to hear your voice
link hands with mine
this choice I’ve made
may crush my tear
but now I want you near

I find you live in every pocket
where silent needle has thread and linked

just one more step

your name with mine
no one will notice you say my name
but yours I have to keep in time

just one more step
to hear your voice
link hands with mine.

“Baby Steps” by L. K. Thayer

from baby shoes
to hi-heel pumps
I’ve walked deep in
the woods & waded

in shallow water
with my feet in the sand

tip-toed
uptown & down
teetered around the block
more than I can count

waltzed out on checks
boyfriends
bars
gotten outa
fancy cars
tripped, flipped

ripped
my pantyhose
stubbed my toes
dragged my feet
missed a beat

stepped up to bat
and now I’m back
to taking
baby steps
&

coming clean
