“We do not walk alone”-Mary Stevenson-Share a poem Sunday

 

From as far as I can remember I have loved poems. You can say so much in so little words and the intensity of the emotions , that those words bring is a real celebration. This Sunday morning I decided to start a series , where I would like to share a poem , that I like, that have touched my heart, that have taught me something or simply have inspired me in some way. 

The first poem is by Mary Stevenson. I have read this poem many times, but every time I read it, I get a boost of gratitude and faith.

Artist: Vladimir Volegov

 

“One night, a man dreamt that

he walked along a shore with the Divine Source of all things,

and as they walked, scenes from his life flashed across the sky above them.

Most of the time, he saw two sets of footprints in the sand for each scene,

but many times along the path there was only one set of footprints, often

at the very darkest and saddest times, and the man was greatly troubled.

He turned to the figure beside him and said,

 “I looked for you and tried to serve you all my days.

I thought that you would care for me in return, yet now I see

that during the most difficult times of my life, I was alone.

I don’t understand why you would leave me when I needed you most.”

The Divine Intelligence replied, “My precious child, you are always in my heart,

and I would not desert you in your time of trial and difficulty.

When you saw only one set of footprints in the sand,

it was then that I carried you.”
