How Far – A poem by Goff James

Winter’s dark road
Frozen bleak
How far
How far
My dear old friend

How far
How far
Before we stop and rest
The night is biting chilled

How far
How far
To journey’s end
Not far
Not far

How far
How far
For I am weary
My dear old friend
How far
How far

Not far my friend
Not far my friend
Lo yonder lies
Tomorrow’s sun

How far
How far
I cannot see
For I am weary
My dear old friend

Hold my hand
Lead me
Lead me
Hold my hand
For I am broken
My dear old friend

How far
How far
To heaven’s gate
Not far
Not far

How far
How far
So I may lay my head
And sleep fore’er in
Paradise

Not far my friend
Not far my friend
