“The road is rough and steep”
He said, while sitting down to rest.
“The thorns and long and sharp,
and may put you to the test”.
“Your Path will not be clearly marked,
For the weeds have grown quite tall”
“But do not fear, my child”, He said
“Upon me you can call”.
“This path I walk with you this day,
I’ve walked with everyone”,
“Whose called my name, and prayed a prayer,
to the Holy Father and his Son”.
So slowly I took his hand in mine,
as we continued to walk on.
When in a clearing, I was amazed
a beautiful change had gone on.
The Path was light, and my heart was full
of Joy and Gratitude.
He said, “My child, now the task is yours,
to share with the multitudes”.
“For God is Love, and Light, and Joy,
and walks with each on every path”.
“With an open heart, all you need to do,
is simply just to ask”.
