Reaching the Summit

In a relationship

Many things should become

Easier with someone there

But we’ve come to

An uphill slope

That is steeper than it seems

And maybe never ending

But I try to keep going

One foot in front of the other

And climbing over debris

Sometimes you’re with me

And other times I am alone

I guess I will wait and see

If you have stuck with me

Until the summit or if

You have given up back down the road
