Trust and Walk with Me

By Liz Oleksa and Bryce Krispie

This poem/song was written to the song called “Shut up and Dance with Me” by Walk the Moon.

Oh, please don’t you give up.
Just keep your faith in me.
I know that you are holding back,
But TRUST and walk with me.
This human and I were meant to be,
So please just TRUST and walk with me.
She lives her life in physical darkness,
And lives everyday with no sight.
She feels helpless both day and night,
But I will help her see,
Allow her to finally feel free…
She took my harness in hand,
I love how it just happened,
We hit the road, and I thought…
Oh, please don’t you give up.
Just keep your faith in me.
I know that you are scared and holding back,
But TRUST and walk with me.
I know this human and I were meant to be,
So please, just TRUST and walk with me…
My brand-new harness matches with her sneakers,
We would work hard and learn from our trainers.
With my head held high, I guided her,
I will help her see,
Giving her the confidence to finally feel free…
Again, she took my harness in hand,
I love how it just happened,
We hit the road, and I thought…
Oh, you are not giving up!
You are keeping your faith in me!
You are not as scared or holding back,
You are TRUSTING and walking with me!
I knew this human and I were meant to be,
I am so glad that you TRUST and walk with me…
By using my eyes
she can start to see her future,
I feel as though my life is now complete as I guide her…
Now, she takes my harness in hand,
I love how it just happens,
We head on home together and I think…
See, you have not given up!
You have kept your faith in me!
You are not scared or holding back,
You have full TRUST and now we walk as a team!!
I knew the day would come when you would finally see,
Believe in yourself, TRUST and you are truly free!
you have not given up!
You have kept your faith in me!
You are not scared or holding back,
You have full TRUST and now we walk as a team!!
I knew the day would come when you could see,
We believe in Us; TRUST and we are now a team and free!

The day my human and I were matched as a Seeing Eye Guide Dog team, our lives became complete. She completes me, and I her. Together we TRUST and believe, knowing that with my help, she can live independently, with confidence and dignity.
