TO WALK THE SHORES OF TIME

I walk along the shores of time;
I'm nearing journey's end.
I find that more than ever now
I lean upon my Friend.

It seems my step has slowed a bit,
no spring is in my gait.
I feel a pain inside my bones
that nothing seems to dissipate. 

My vision now is not so good,
it's difficult to see.
I struggle hard to read my bills,
and I sit closer to the TV.

I mostly stay inside my house,
don't visit like I did.
I sometimes wish I could return
to when I was a kid.

But looking back I can't complain,
I've lived so many years.
I've walked along the shores of time
with laughter and with tears.

And sometimes when I wander back
and think about the years,
I know I never walked alone,
especially through the tears.

I also know that many times
I turned aside from God,
but He never failed to walk with me
as through the years I trod.

So now, approaching journey's end,
I walk beside the sea.
It comforts me to understand
my Savior walks with me.
