Walk Home With Me; Life's Journey

I walk along the highway of a life time journey;

I started with both my parents and siblings walking side by side with me;

Together we walked in life's wide road;

With spirits high in hope, faith, love and security.



Walk On


For whatever reasons, I suddenly found my self walking alone;

My parents and siblings went their own ways, to each his own;

I wanted to turn back and trail them;

But I was confused whose road to follow;

For each was trailing a road apart from one another.


I screamed to them to wait for me;

Or to follow the road I take, but they obviously never heard me;

Instead I heard a voice which said;

"Follow your own path and stick to it."

And when I tried once more to look their way;

Before my eyes they just faded away.


I am so lonely and afraid now that I am all alone on this wide and dusty road;

I know not what to do;

I just know that I have to move on;

Hoping that somewhere along the way;

Our paths would meet and we will be together once more.

And so I walk on with a heavy heart;

When I notice that someone else is walking beside me;

He holds my hands as he says "Fear not; I am with you."

In my confusion I welcome him; for is it not that in this journey, two is better than one?

I need his company, or any good company.


He seems to be attentive to my needs;

He provides me food when I am hungry and water to quench my thirst;

He shields me from the cold and from the rain and even from the biting heat of the sun;

He helps me to take another step onward when my legs are tired and weary;

And carry me with his strong arms when I cannot make it on my own;

For all the good things that he does to me;

How can't I be convinced that he is my perfect mate throughout this endless journey?


We continue to walk in this life's pathway;

This time I carry our daughter while he holds our son who walks beside him;

My joy and confidence cannot be contained for having a family of my own walking with me;

The stranger that used to be is now the loving father of my children.

But then life's journey have twists and turns;

Sometimes the road splits in two or more;

And when I turn to look, I find out that one is missing along the way.



We are walking in this journey for a decade more;

Now I realize that It's just my grown up children and I walking in this journey;

And now I walk on with my children by my side;

With hearts full of hope for the bright home ahead;


But once again in life's hi-way; there are always crossroads and twists and turns;

Until I find once again that my company is another stranger;

The stranger who finally walks home with me.

techygran,

Hi techygran, thank you so much for your inspiring comment. Yes because I believe that in life's journey the Universe knows our individual needs and I know that my need is to have somebody to journey with me in this life, and that is exactly what I get. Thank you and God Bless.

Dear Jenny, This is a very moving poem you have written! As humans we do have to keep going with the journey of life whether we have a companion or not... I'm happy that you have a new companion who is taking you home! ~Cynthia

Thank you Peggy W for visiting my hub.

Yes, and most of the time we have to make the decision which road to take hoping that such choice is the best direction. Nobody knows exactly where the roads end and what comes up along the way. God Bless

Interesting how our paths twist and turn throughout our lives...sometimes of our own volition and sometimes because of things that are out of our control. Walk safely and happily on your life's path!

Can the lit candle stop burning? unless it's blown in the wind, or someone deliberately "kill" it.

Thank you and thank you.

Jynzly,Reason why I said that is just because that is what it looks like and you won't understand what I mean just because you wrote it. A mirror will never see itself.
