Walk Slowly, Dear!

A poem found in our Family Bible for a loved one or spouse that goes before you.

*************

If you should go

before me, dear,

walk slowly down

the ways of death,

well-worn and wide.

For I would want

to overtake you quickly

and seek my

journey’s ending

by your side.

I would be forlorn

not to decry you

down some

shining highroad

where I came.

Walk slowly, dear, and

after look behind you

and pause to hear

if someone does

call your name!

Adelaide Love
