Small gesture

It happened a long time ago,
But the impact you made
Is only beginning to show

One small gesture of yours
Opened up doors

And I walked through

I walked through, without you
I walked alone, with you long gone

That small gesture of yours
I left far behind
But now it seems to occupy my mind

And even if I see no point in regret
I wish I could go back

I wish I was there,
Once more
At least to say Thank you,
For opening doors

At least to feel grateful
For that small gesture
that now, I know,
Was pure kindness
and selfless support

Pure dedication, courageous determination
Of the wisdom of old
To leave lights that could be guiding me
Lingering around my soul

To leave words of understanding
Carved into stone

To show compassion for me
As I walk on
