Monday Memories: Everlasting Road

I am a solitary man traveling on an empty road

My life journey’s been an awfully heavy load

 

I yearn to walk a few more miles by the end of this day

My battered and worn shoes have so very much to say

 

I survive by myself after all of these long years

My past is filled with disappointments and tears

 

I have met few along this road who even say “hello”

My disheveled appearance keeps eyes looking low

 

I look ahead to what this day will offer to me

My weakened eyes make it challenging to see

 

I would welcome a hot meal and a warm shower

My bag of jerky will need to nourish for hours

 

I feel my energy running low on fuel just the same

My mind tries to stay alert as if playing a new game

 

I wish to stop by this large sycamore tree

My eyes can rest under its shade for free

 

I will rest and relax in peace along this quiet road

My journey will soon be finished, yet I never slowed

 

I will continue my peaceful trek down a lonesome route

My days are numbered, but I remain strong and stout

 

I am ready to meet my Lord on His righteous terms

His everlasting spirit brings much for me to affirm

  1. Richard, what a beautiful poem. I find parallels to my own life. And for all the weary travelers who are searching for love and praying they’re on the right road. I even thought of Zacheus. Thank you for blessing us.
