"Walk With Me"

"Walk with me," I heard him say,
"Walk with me awhile today."

"Talk with me," I heard him speak,
"Talk with me of the things you think."

Share with me the things you feel,
Share with me so you can heal.

Cry with me through your heartbreaks,
Cry with me when your soul aches.

Look with me, a new sunrise!
Look with me through opened eyes.

See with me the world anew,
See with me my point of view.

Laugh with me in pure delight,
Laugh with me it's all alright!

Sing with me as we stroll along,
Sing with me I love your song.

Learn with me your wondrous story,
Learn with me your prior glory.

Know with me just who you are,
Know with me we've traveled far.

Create with me and dreams come true,
Create with me I create through you!

Walk with me on Heaven's shore,
Walk with me forever more!"

POET'S COMMENTS

I was very touched by the sweetness and purity of this poem. It did bring tears to my eyes.

The poem and picture are not mine. They belong to artist Greg Olsen. I thank him for allowing me to share them with you.

In reading "Walk With Me," I felt a very innocent, unblemished, endearing, and private moment with my Elder Brother Jesus. Oh, that we could all have a wonderful big brother like him as characterized in the poem, to walk with us side by side, through trial and triumphant.

And we can! If we will choose to spend more time with him, we can!

In the poem, I felt safe and protected, reassured, confident, cared for, loved, and that I was the most important person in his life for that moment. Such is the celestial love and concern of our Savior and heavenly parents, for every child that comes to earth.

I can only rejoice, that I want that same experience with him on that shore.

Thank you again Greg for those beautiful words of inspiration!
