Path to Healing

Decision hung
heavy upon
his heart.
What was
best for
all concerned.

Too many nights
he walked in
shadow and
woke to sweat.
Till all in the
house lay
light upon their beds
listening to
him stir,
waiting for him
to stir.
Then they could
rest.

Days were
good, but
the heat of
the sun and
comfort of
friends
did not last
through the
night.

Peace he
knew, but
it would not
settle into
his soul.

Too many
memories
haunted his
steps. He
feared
the melancholy
would seep
into the house.

Healing was
a distant
path he
could not
put off
forever...

Behind him
would rest the
best — the
golden goal of
the quest.

His choice
would bring
peace to his
house.

And healing to
a soul tired
of dark
memories.
