We Walk Alone


Alice C. Bateman

We walk alone in darkness

Even in the bright of day

Our sorrows overtake us

When we try to walk away


We each have our own troubles

We try to work them out

But oftentimes, we cannot help

But be consumed with doubt


We try to smell the flowers

But there seems to be no way

To get any enjoyment

On a dark and depressed day


The sunlight doesnít penetrate

The all-pervasive gloom

We canít even see the beauty

In a beautiful, sweet bloom


But still somehow we must go on

Must do our days with grace

Try not to let the people see

What lies behind our face


Life can be such a struggle

But the beauty is still there

It might take a loved oneís laughter

A hint that someone cares


Then perhaps we can awaken

From the misery we feel

Reach out to God, and hold on

And know His love is real
