Walk With Me


You walk with me on this hard path, by my side, as I used to walk with you
We are still together

I take you with me as I venture forth, to the rally, to the concert, to the meeting, to the sandy paths by the river
You are there

I learn to feel your presence as I shout on your behalf, demand justice for you, for all like you
I carry your spirit

With every step I feel your shadow, lingering just beside me, always present
Watching me

As I go back out into the world, will you make it safe again
Will you help me learn how to be again
Can you guide my way
Is your spirit enough to carry me
Is our love vast enough to overcome this all

Walk with me, sweet child, and we shall see
