I have no Fear




I have no fear

Since I walk with the Lord

Who’s shown me the way

Every single day


I used to fear the darkness

It seemed so unreal

Then I felt a feeling so strong

I knew I wasn’t alone the Lord was beside me


Now even in the black of night

If I’d see ghostly apparitions

Would I fear

As they are closer to the Lord than me


There are spirits which wish to be

Upon this earth

And others who are trapped

Between this world and the next


As a child my mom and I

Would go to the cemetery

To place flowers upon

My father’s grave


I’d always have but one question

Which I feared to ask

But in my heart

I wanted to know is daddy really here?


The cemetery was lovely

With many mausoleums and graves

The paths lined with flowers

But I couldn’t imagine my daddy walking there


Years later when I placed flowers upon a loved one’s grave

With trembling hands my tears falling

Warmth came upon me

There was nothing to fear


The grave was a symbol

A place for me to visit

There was no one there

Their soul was with the Lord


So you see my fear was for naught

The Lord in His wisdom

Took it from me

And let me feel the love that should be


The sun never shone brighter

That first morning my faith came shining through

When all doubt had been taken away

And I could say Lord I believe


The moon never looked as good

When it showed the way in the dark night

Knowing that the Lord was near

And there was no fear


So I’ll go through life

Knowing that however far I roam

Through the strange and unknown

The Lord is walking with me

Awesome poem Gypsy. The Lord is with each of us but that belief will let us experience him and then there is no fear. I have personally experienced his guiding hand on very many occasions when I was at crossroads. He helped me decide what to do.

Voted up and all the way across except for the one.

So glad you liked this Lord. Yes, I truly had a period where I felt discontent and a certain fear of what was to be and then God in His infinite wisdom showed me the way and I truly believed. Thinking back on some memories I was inspired to write about my experience. God bless.

Thanks for your comment Jackie. You are so right thee of no faith have a sad world to face. My goodness if I had to go about thinking that that's all there is the cold ground especially for those loved ones who have gone I couldn't find any peace. I let the Lord guide me each day and each day I always find some sign that He is near. God bless.
