Poem: A Voice From Afar

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.


I walked this way

many an hour,

never did I see

the light shine.

As I wandered,

I heard

a voice from afar

call down.

Take my hand

I will be your friend,

do not worry

you will not hurt again.

Take my hand

let me guide you,

you will not be

lost again.

"Precious Lord - Take My Hand" by Merle Haggard

Hi...i was certain I replied to this one, but it is not showing up here.

Thank you for your kind words, Alexander James.

A lovely sentiment.

A very beautiful piece from a beautiful woman.
