Walking down the gloomy path,
I hear your anxious cries.
I hold up my old lantern,
And seek you with my eyes.

I hear your weary footsteps,
and rush towards your voice.
My love for you, my darling,
leaves me with no choice.

I find you struggling through the gloom,
see your outstretched hand,
take me as your guiding light,
in this barren land.

Let me be your guardian,
on this foggy path,
cast aside your sorrow,
lay down all your wrath.

If your feet get too tired,
or you lose your cheer,
lean upon my shoulder,
and whisper in my ear.

Take my hand, my sweetheart,
on this starless night,
for soon we'll be together,
in the bright sunlight.

So walk with me, my Angel,
out of this cold night,
and stay with me forever,
to the sunset of our life.

Thanks for the responses everyone *8). This was one of my first attempts at real poetry and was written one year and one week ago. It's a poem very close to my heart, as much now as then. Once again, thanks.

My homework tonight is to try and reply to a lot more peoples poetry (I hope I'm not TOO tired!!!)
