I know you're afraid,
Because I am too;
But you won't be alone;
I will be with you.

You are uncertain,
Not sure what to do;
Trust Him who holds tomorrow;
I will pray with you.

Your tasks tower high,
There's so much to do;
You are weary and worn,
I will toil with you.

Temptations and doubt,
Trying tests to go through;
Victory over trials;
I will sing with you.

I know you're happy,
Because I am too;
But you won't smile alone;
I will laugh with you.

When you're in the right,
Faithful friends are few,
It's hard to stand your ground;
I will stand with you.

You face accusers;
They prick and taunt you.
Their words can't defeat truth;
I will defend you.

I know you're afraid,
Because I am too;
But you won't go alone;
I will go with you.

Nights of searing pain,
Waves overwhelm you.
Wishing I could do more;
I will stay with you.

Facing Jordan's River,
Last journey 'fore you,
With tears, I let go your hand,
For He will be with you.

What a beautiful poem. I loved this meaningful and powerful entry. Thank you for this. God Bless you~

We often overlook the simplicity of this message. What a great reminder and this definitely encourages! I love your repeating last line (that is changed by one single word each time). I was tempted (on a reread) to just read the last line of each stanza. Very nice thoughts!

Wow! This is so beautiful and powerful. It's a perfect poem for a memorial in the newspaper or at a funeral. It's also perfect for every day and you touched me deeply with your words

Congratulations for ranking 12th in Masters and 20th overall!
