Every stairway holds sweet expectation
For what could wait there-in,
And great is the suspense
Of all that may be seen.
We savor the delight of life
While pondering there upon the edge,
Letting our imagination
Satisfy the rest.
Will it hold forth amazing promise
Of everything we dream,
Or might we be disappointed
For whatever could have been.
And so we tremble at the entrance
Wondering at the risk,
Are we ready for the new adventure
Is it really for the best.
A very few might enter boldly
Where angels fear to tread,
But many more are quite afraid
And inclined to walk along with dread.
But, however we may be
We all meet the same result,
What we find may not be as we planned
Not that we're at fault.
For life has many twisty turns
And the clock will not turn back
To try another varied way,
Which would lead a different track.
Yet even if we could try again
The same trials may come our way,
So we might as well keep on the path,
Just where we are today.
God has such a special purpose
For everything He brings,
Molding us gently to His likeness
To change us deep within.
So every pathway that He opens
We can safely enter in,
As the agenda for all He loves
Is but the beautiful stairway up to Him. 

Soft Whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems 2005


I lay my head upon Thy infinite heart,
I hide beneath the shelter of Thy wing;
Pursued and tempted, helpless, I must cling
To Thee, my loving Father; I shall not depart,
For sins sorrows yet pursue,
And Life is where Thou art!
