Take My Hand and Walk With Me

By Gene Groner, Marines

Writing Type: Poem

By Gene Allen Groner

VA Medical Center--Kansas City, MO

 

Come and walk with me as I walk today;

Take my hand and walk beside me, I pray.

Be my friend and love me true

Just as I am loving you.

Come and walk with me as I walk today.

 

We can walk beside the stream in the woods,

Feel the wind upon our faces clean and pure

With the grass beneath our feet

And the sound of water sweet.

We can walk beside the stream in the woods.

 

Let us hear the sound of birds as they sing,

As they take to flight and move their lovely wings,

Hearing sounds of sweetest bliss,

Touching hands and sharing a wish.

Let us hear the sound of birds as they sing.

 

Take my hand; come and walk with me today.

You’re always cherished as my friend.

Your heart and mine will beat the same

As sure as a rainbow follows the rain.

Take my hand; come and walk with me today.
