One More Step

Every day I climb some stairs
A few steps here and few more there;
One by one until I’ve found
The destination where I’m bound. 

Some days my steps are small and sure
Never less and never more; 
Always ground in gravity’s grace
Never questioning my own place. 

But other times while in the dark
I stumble looking for my mark; 
While moving upwards, homeward bound
Not knowing what might soon be found. 

And so I move each day I live
Praying for one more step to give;
Myself another view of life
And chance to see the stars at night. 

One more step to the rooftop high
Where all good climbers reach and strive;
For one more sunrise, one more set
And all I ask is one more step.

    Terrell, the steps between here and there, brings us close to the destination of God. The choices we make, offer and take from the steps in life... Once again, you have amazed me with the way you write... Both light and nature found in the imagery. Thank you for sharing more than grace on your page.... Goodnight.. Linda

    Heed not temptation to procrastination // as steadily draws near your destination // step surefooted on with nary no waver // yet remain mindful the rose scent to savor. I'm with you on this one, Terry. The very best of luck, my good friend. Big smiles to you. I'm rooting for you. Licia :)
