Old Shoes

like old shoes
you’ve tread with me all paths
walked by my side any where
and now in old age
you make my tears comfortable

As a shoeaholic, anything with 'shoes' in the title has GOT to attract my attention. But the poem isn't about shoes. It's about walking through life together with someone. Just a few words, but so lovely. Love, Fran xx
