Walk Into The Light Jonah, Walk Into the Light


Walk into the light Jonah
Walk into the light
Angel hands will lead you
When you walk into the light.

Do not return to comfort me
Nor visit in the night
I only seek your joy at last
So walk into the light.

Let the angels guide you
Walk into the light.

Walk into the light Jonah
Walk into the light
Angel hands will lead you
When you walk into the light.

Do not return to comfort me
Nor visit in the night
I only seek your joy at last
So walk into the light.

Let the angels guide you
Walk into the light.

Gone, but not forgotten
To higher realms above
Angel hands to lead you
To eternal love.

Gone, but not forgotten
To glory and afar
Angel hands to lead you
Where the eternal are.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Jonah or 'Jude' died at the age of 24 from alcohol related illness. He had been drinking since the age of 12 when he ran away from home. In our last conversation I told him that he had been drinking for half of his life and next time we meet at the park bench he should think of quitting. That was our last conversation, as Jonah died the next day. I only wish him joy at last and to be greeted by Angels and light.

    What a beautiful poem but written for such a sad event. Twenty four is far too young an age to have to take that heavenly walk. I love your utter unselfishness in the stanza that starts, Do not return to comfort me.....
    So very beautiful and touching. (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
