Sharing My Footsteps
 
Sharing My Footsteps

Uncertainty reigned
Within her world of shadows
And hesitant steps
For the veil was lowering
Slowly dissolving the light

I understood her struggle. I knew the touch of that insecurity, the fear of steps taken into the unknown, the emptiness of voices without faces, and the often overwhelming sadness that comes with the realization of these truths. I was bade to come forward, not because I understood, but because I knew she still did not. I offered my arm as her guide and we walked together, sharing our stories. I knew some would observe us and think of the adage about 'the blind leading the blind', and perhaps laugh or snicker at the thought. Others would not be able to hide the shadow of pity that played across their faces. They likely would not, or maybe could not, see what lies behind the veil of darkness, beneath the darkening skies, and beyond the dissolving light.  But there would be those who would know, and would understand, that I was not really guiding her. I was merely sharing my footsteps until she could find her own once again.
