The Traveler

The Traveler

He [She] has put on invisibility.
Dear Lord, I cannot see—
But this I know, although the road     ascends
And passes from my sight,
That there will be no night;
That You will take him [her] gently by the hand
And lead him [her] on
Along the road of life that never ends,
And he [she] will find it is not death but dawn.
I do not doubt that You are there as here,
And You will hold him [her] dear.
