God is Walking Beside: Go Vat

When warm summer breeze brushes by,
bees, butterflies happily fly,
remember God is walking beside.

Mighty mountains stand tall,
to atrocities never they fall,
remember God is walking beside.

Sometimes darkness clutters mind,
but , still a speck of  hope we find,
remember God is walking beside.

To enlightenment when we wake,
And when last breath we take,
remember God is walking beside.

  13. Hello greetings and good wishes.

    Very inspiring poem well written with a positive message of encouragement and hope.

    Very often in times of difficulty, troubles and disappointments we get discouraged and depressed without realising that God is walking beside us and guiding our steps in the right direction. God always shows us light at the end of the long dark tunnel. We always find a solution one way or the other for every problem. This clearly shows that God always walks beside us.

    Best wishes
