Walk humbly with thy God
 
 
I have walked down pathways
that should have offended my thoughts,
but in my sensing of this humanity
it did not.
 
I have held hands with concepts
that should have repulsed my reason,
but in the passioned tears I wept
it did not.
 
I have slept with wants and needs
that could have twisted or stolen my soul,
but always felt the joy of love, given and received,
so it did not.
 
This rocky road, strewn with stones of melancholy,
it's many detours of despair,
was never paved with gold - yet golden light was there
and there too
flowers of faith grew
in rich, varied colours of experience.
 
My soul never flew
so high as not to feel the earth-bound pain
or know the pleasures of the body senses.
And the light remains,
and the flowers grow,
And the road narrows to a path,
until the path is gone.
 
Now...just a single, simple, mountain track,
my way has cast off the wideness of it's wants.
I walk my little walk
and see ahead only a few faltering steps.
The fresh green grass of youthful hopes
bears the scorching of life's sceptical summer
and the mature browning of it's autumn.
 
The light shines,
and the flowers grow:
and...methinks I see the imprint
of my Master's shoe
ahead of me upon the way.
 
So, I travel, gladly humbled, to my destiny
aware, as always, of His Presence
...........wondrously still with me.
