Come, Walk With Me

Rating: 3.3
Come, walk with me,
There's only thee
To bless my spirit now -
We used to love on winter nights
To wander through the snow;
Can we not woo back old delights?
The clouds rush dark and wild
They fleck with shade our mountain heights
The same as long ago
And on the horizon rest at last
In looming masses piled;
While moonbeams flash and fly so fast
We scarce can say they smiled -

Come walk with me, come walk with me;
We were not once so few
But Death has stolen our company
As sunshine steals the dew -
He took them one by one and we
Are left the only two;
So closer would my feelings twine
Because they have no stay but thine -

'Nay call me not - it may not be
Is human love so true?
Can Friendship's flower droop on for years
And then revive anew?
No, though the soil be wet with tears,
How fair soe'er it grew
The vital sap once perished
Will never flow again
And surer than that dwelling dread,
The narrow dungeon of the dead
Time parts the hearts of men -'

A very interesting poem. When life is fast fleeing past and age not on your side with almost all your friends gone, your remember the beautiful days gone and wish to relive them again. Beautiful work of poetry.

This line caught my eye, Can we not woo back old delights? But Death has stolen our company, as Sunshine steals the dew. Beautifully crafted piece of poetry

wow great expression- But Death has stolen our company As sunshine steals the dew -......./// our earthly unity only can steal the death; only can break the death; yet let's we walk together on the path of love, on the path of unity, on the path of humanity
