TITLE: WALK ON

While walking with his dad one night
Through the forest dense and dread,
A little lad remarked his light
Didn’t shine so far ahead.

Encroaching darkness all around
Filled his tiny heart with fear—
The arc of light upon the ground
Looked all set to disappear.

He tightly held his father’s hand,
Moved in closer to his side
As his imagination ran
Amok with each forward stride.

His dad replied, “you know my son,
Though your light seems small and weak,
At times it almost looks undone,
It still shines before your feet.”

“Each forward step you take will be
Lit up by that faithful light;
As you press onward you shall see
It will keep your pathway bright.”

So hand in hand they travelled on
‘Till they came to journey’s close;
Through every step that light had shone
Lighting up the path they chose.

Sometimes The Lord shines little light,
Just enough for present needs—
Let us walk by faith, not by sight,
Content where His Spirit leads.

I enjoyed this poem. Very sweet.

I love this simple, sweet poem. It perfectly pictures a truth about receiving just enough light for our present need, and trust in our Father. Sometimes the best light we have is the written promise of our God that He is good and merciful and will never leave us... but that is enough!

Excellent object lesson!

The meter was a little bit trippy in places.

I love the relationship between the father and son in this poem. Very sweet.

This poem ties perfectly to Psalm 119:105. Loved the gentleness that flowed between the father and his son.
