Love Lights the Way

So fellow travelers, dramatic images on the drive home from last weekend’s road trip stirred up many emotions about this stage of Life’s journey for my college-bound daughter and me.  This poem flowed from a heart renewed by friendship’s quiet affirmation of Greater Love which enfolds us all.


The road becomes a silver ribbon

a glimmering thread

winding a path

through valleys cast into deep shadows

by a retreating Sun

Your hands remain steady on the wheel

in the same gentle way

you held your children’s hands

Certain the Love which guides you

while sometimes dim

will continue to Light the Way

and bring you safely Home.


Walk gently on the path my friends and may adventure find you ready.
