A Million Tracks On My Behalf

Holding fast to his
slumping shoulders
I whisper,
'I'll never let you go',
as the the familiar
falls away
to the crumbling cliffs
of youthful temptations.
Steeling glances
from between hair
of rain and wisdom
I watch his feet
make a million tracks
on my behalf
through this valley
of shadowy doubt,
ready to sacrifice
his scarlet blood
should the demons
spring from below
their steaming waters.

So much meaning and emotions in two little sentences!
