Walking with me by Adrian Manning

 
(After the death of James Quinton)

The ascent is long and arduous
My steps slow but steady
The peak seems so distant
And the mountains are law

Alone I breathe deeply
Moving toward the unknown
But I sense you with me

The wind is your breath
Echoing mine
It speaks to me
Your voice inside my head
Telling me its tough
It always will be

I see your footsteps
In snow
Next to mine
Walking with me

It feels good
And I do not feel alone
Any more
Although
I know
We will never
Climb this mountain
Together

Not in this world
Anyway
