Why Walk Without Faith



                                                              Lord it is dark
                                                              the road is rough to go
                                                              my burdens are heavy
                                                              to carry they grow

                                                              The brightness of my candle
                                                              once there grew dim
                                                              if I could only touch
                                                              your precious garment's hem

                                                              This unlit candle Lord
                                                              my faith without a spark
                                                              please light my candle
                                                              to take away the dark

                                                             Then the road I travel
                                                             will never be the same
                                                             my steps will be swift
                                                             quick as a lifting flame

                                                             I shall live lighthearted
                                                             through all of my days
                                                             my faith restoreth new
                                                             in joyful, countless ways

                                                            Why walk without faith
                                                            with a candle in the wind
                                                            when your precious blood Lord
                                                            from heaven did descend

                                                            It covers all of mankind
                                                            with feathers of a white dove
                                                            let the candles burn brightly
                                                            with faith, walk with love

                                                            Susie Swanson, 2012

  10. Hi Susie! This is such a serene, and beautiful poem. I just love it. It is so inspiring and encouraging. I hope that you had a nice weekend and that a good week awaits. I enjoyed rereading some of the poems in your book last night. I keep it in a little basket by my chair and look at it often. Your poems always make me think of goodness, kindness and happy times. Rest well tonight! Delisa :)
