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.

Poem Summary

A voice from afar is a poem about walking though life without knowing there is a guiding hand to reach out to help us. As one wanders through life he can hear a voice that can bring light into his path if he grabs hold. His pain will go away and he will not be lost again.

A Voice From Afar

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

Chrish,

Thank you.

It does seem like life gets a bit hectic & we sometimes forget he is there willing to help us.

Thanks for the love, it is appreciated.

Have a great day.

Awesome reminder! Our busy life is just too noise to hear him neither feel him. What a desiccated soul we have thirst by his presence.

Have a great day Ms Brenda!

I'm sending a bunch of love !!!

Soothing voice. We all need this to share in our burdens; carry us when we're exhausted. A meaningful piece!
