Michael Edwards





She looked forward with new hope.

What did her eyes see?

Was it love?


His face displayed contentment.

Were his dreams answered?

Was it her?


He moved slowly towards her.

Would she reach for him?

Was she there?


The creaking stairs had many treads.

Would they reach the stars?

Were they lit?

      thanks Tony - only two to go - could be a bit boring if it went beyond that.
