Things Changed (Poem 236)

Things changed and change 
   changed and then 
her normal life was lost
   and strange   far out of 
range beyond  those mountains 
    there and those ones too 
she cared about her people 
there and cared for these 
as well    but time will tell who 
cares for her 
sometimes    he's walking 
back and walking    backtracking 
back to her in shoes whose soles 
are worn    his shoulders warm 
with sun and hard 
with snow    he'll go back some 
day and when he does she knows 
she'll pack her bags 
and head his way and walk 
those roads    touching 
with each step she steps
the bits of sole he left 
behind him when 
things changed.
