Mountains and Countryside ..... a poem by Audrey Austin

previously published in Penpourri: Elliot Lake Writers' Workshop Anthology of Stories and Poems (2011)
Close your eyes
Open your heart
Come journey with me now.
Take my hand
Don't be afraid
No need to question how.
The first step is the hardest
I truly understand
So we'll take this walk together
Walking hand in hand.
We'll walk beside still waters
We'll rest beneath the tree
How loving was our Father
To provide for you and me
The beauty of this countryside
The river's gentle current
All fears are gone
The Power of One
Encounters no deterrent.
And now we face a mountain
No mountain is too high
We will meet the challenge
And we will touch the sky
Earth and Heaven meet
Faithful hearts rely
On the hand outstretched to guide
And with courage we abide.
