Family Tree Home
THE LONE WALKI walked along the great sand dunes
Laid down millions of years ago,
The blowing sand was the same-
The angry whistling winds still blow.
I walked beneath the giant redwoods
And felt I was far into space
As I looked up at these tall monarchs
Dripping with beauty, age and grace.
I walked along the Pacific beach
Where white capped waves had recently wept;
I picked up treasures from the wet earth
Washed up from the ocean's depth
I walked along a cool mountain stream
In the evening's long afterglow
And felt a peace, contentment and joy
That truly those that walk alone can know
Someday I'll take a longer walk . . .
A walk everyone must trod
I will not stop or even look back
Until I find my home with God
