Summary: A poem of leaving trouble behind and walking with a friend
Leave your sorrows far behind
and walk with me to find
a calmer place to be.
When the glamour fades from the life
you thought that you would love,
when the road ahead seems
full of misery,
when the worries get too much
and you can’t carry on,
when you’ve come to doubt the things
that used to mean so much,
then walk with me.
Leave the glaring lights and noise behind,
leave your watch and phone at home,
walk away from all the troubles
that confuse your weary mind.
Find a place where you can truly be alone
and walk with me.
Forest, field, or quiet garden,
beach or park, or candle in the dark,
you will find me in the silence,
stop and listen,
find the light beyond the gloom
and you will find me there.
You wonder who I am;
I am the gentle touch upon your hair,
I am the comfort and companionship
when no one else is there.
I am the eagle flying high,
I am the wolf, I am the bear,
I am the Dawning and the End of Time.
Look within yourself
and I am always there.
