Pilgrim! The Only Way awaits;
Expects; each day, anticipates.
As disenchanted dream fades and
Crumbles into the dust on which
Each footstep now records no mark,
Be gone! – though dream and Way seem dark.
Efface! Enfold the wasted land
Wherein His presence grasps the hand,
Illuminates, and shows the way
Till peace recovers your pilgrim
Heart; and with each step hear Him say,
“You have your friend; your walk; your Way;
Our odyssey begins with free,
Romera y Romero – Me.
Only this do I ask of you:
Sojourn beside me through this day.
I am with you. I am The Way.”
