Song for Dana

We walked, we talked, we passed the time

And you go your way, I go mine

In time our paths will interweave

And you won’t go, and I won’t leave

And when our paths connect once more

We’ll understand what walking’s for

And step by step we’ll make our way

Nowhere to go and here to stay.

by Susan (Jivita) Rochmis
