Hour 8 (2022)- Mountain Mystery

I would climb a mountain for you; rocky, steep, and snowy

The mountain would speak to our souls, clouds floating around our heads

 

We would make the trek to the treacherous peak, silent and together

We would take in the marvelous views, pikas and mountain goats.

We would bake in the sun, even as the snow swirled at our feet.

 

I would take on this fantastic journey, my body pushed to its limits

I would experience the highs and lows, fear of the great heights

 

With struggling breaths we would journey on, fighting for the summit

With trembling limbs we would trample on, the path a slippery slope

 

I would find the strength to tackle this goal, breath coming hard and fast

I would climb a mountain for you, rocky, steep, and snowy

 

I would take on this fantastic journey, my body pushed to its limits

With no thoughts to our safety, just the ultimate target of accomplishment

I would follow you to the end, feet bruised and back aching

 

But you would never ask me to climb a mountain with you

Because our paths have never crossed.
