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.
