pillar of cloud

Watching over me

A great cloud by day
He lifts and circles ahead of me
Like a whirl wind, he sweeps my path clean
Frees the footpath of prickly thorns
Shielding my fair skin from the scorching sun
He soothes me with cool winds from his breathe
A pillar of fire by night
Swirling and spinning along my course
Lights up the thick darkness
Chasing away evil shadows
They cringe in his wake
My night becomes like day
The angels serenade me to sleep
My heavy eyes struggle to keep awake
I am mesmerized by their company
As they ascend and descend upon the son of man
