And when the door swung wide

In the lustrous light stood a child

Come, leave the darkness she said

Cross over, join me in the light

Your journey does not end here

It simply changes form

The you that you are now becomes

The you that you once were.

Seek again the purity of youth

Once again dare to dream, to imagine

Remember again when all was possible

Before you ventured beyond innocence

Come, take my hand, begin to trust again

Let me guide you to the other side

We are but one. Do not fear. It has been said

“A little child shall lead them”

I am that child. We are that child.

Welcome to salvation

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
