Shadorma Wanderlust


so much to still see
trails to hike
one step then
another; mountains to top
adventure awaits

you and me
we go together
where you guide
there I am
the trail unfolds as we go
we wander as two

for better
or for worse, we are
a full life
my favorite traveler
where will we go next?
