An Elegy*

We've known each other for so long
Survive we did through storms so strong.
Together we walked the sands of time,
Roads unknown or filled with grime.
And now as I lay you to rest,
I cannot help but be distressed
Because the one that took your place
Often leaves frown on my face.
Forget I must our stomps and jumps,
I cannot do them in these pumps.
A gnawing pain creeps through my toes
Oh, how I miss my rubber shoes!

*In loving memory of my sneakers. Although you are not worn, you are not forgotten.
