He Walked Beside Me


I wrote this poem for a local contest here in town, and received a letter today telling me it was now in the semi finals. I thought I would share it with you.

Shadows bouncing from the trees
Smell of earth under my feet
Darkness stands all around
I am not alone, for I am with thee.

I am forgiven, I am l loved
I live each day with his holy grace
When I sin, I look towards him
I ask forgiveness from above

He has a plan perfect for me
He wants me to complete
If I fall, he picks me up
And lights the path for me to see.

He came to me one peaceful night
And whispered in my ear
He told me, child you have done good
Now come with me into the light.
