Day – 36 – The Dam

‚ÄčThrough the Up and down,

I have flown and flown… 

Only

Never reaching down

my soul, Dip and drown,

Lonely!

One day, You came down

the hill, valley’s crown,

Stop (save) me!

  1. Ah….when we are down in the dumps, it is always nice to have someone come down to meet us and then limp with us back to the top! Once up there, it’s exhilerating to know we’ve achieved the climb with a friend.
