Only One is Named by Raymond A. Foss

Only one of them
on that dusty Emmaus road
given a name, identity
we are able, led,
to put ourselves into the story
joining Cleopas,
the stranger, walking
on that journey
after the death,
unclear on the future
not yet aware of the resurrection
the completing of the prophecy
walking with them
a journey to faith
to awareness
able to see the risen Christ
walking beside you,
walking beside me
