For Love of a Pilgrim

by Yee Ying Yeo © 2019

Upon this lonely path I tread
The unknown road lies up ahead
A weary pilgrim on her way
To journey by the light of day

Beneath the bright-lit sky above
No further than the arms of love
That heav’n itself should reach me round
To hold me steady, safe and sound

While onto some great unknown morrow
Through joy and mirth, with pain and sorrow
The winding path yet holds her course
While twain the lines their sides enforce

For life is but a journey long
Not for the fast or swift and strong
Not to pursue some self-made goal
Nor for vainglory of the soul

To live is to love, to love, to live
To love is to serve, to serve, to give
Our mortal life holds us to earth
Immortal love our second birth

No man’s journey is complete
Without the sound of anthem sweet
Of love in singing, makes her song
That moments passing may prolong

The sacred music from heaven flow
In hearts that yearn on earth below
To find of love its joy divine
The utmost bliss of God’s design

For on the lonely pilgrim way
The glory of love must come to stay
For when the dusk of eve shall fall
Love mirrors the sky, its heavenward call

To shine the light that knows true love
And whisper to the stars above
Who look down as we make our way
To journey’s end, the break of day
