Dark Road Poem by James Martin Devaney


I will be your stay
When the feet falter.
I will be your stay
When the tears blind.
Love will sweeten yet
Though the friend alter,
And the world’s unkind.
Not alone you go this way.
Hold my hand on the dark road.
I will be your courage: would the load
On me might lay.
We will share the dust
Who have shared heaven,
Nearer now in trust
That the need calls.
I will be your stay
Till the path fail us,
Till the night veil us,
And the silence falls.
