Going down life’s road …
Days like so many colorful butterflies.
come and go flittering along life’s road ,
there are some that leave lasting memories
and those that we are glad to see are gone.
Sometimes when my mood is kind of blue,
I sit and wonder about the many people,
who have come in and out of my door,
wherever I have roamed.
There are those who have made my life richer,
left treasures close to my heart,
memories to last a lifetime
and they are the ones I miss the most.
There are those who’ve made my life a hell,
left tiny break-lines in my heart,
I guess there was a reason –
they came my way.
Life is like a long road,
stretching before your eyes,
try as you might –
the end still not in sight.
Along this road when I dream,
I imagine friends and family,
having reached the end –
waiting for me just round the bend.
Sometimes I get weary
and when the tears come,
I let them flow some,
then lift my eyes to where I gather my strength from.
I silently pray,
Oh, Lord how great you are,
leading me through this big world –
I know I’ll never let go of your hand.
Then I’m ready to continue along life’s road ,
knowing that I have nothing to fear,
I’ve been blessed with so much good
and for this, I have the Lord to thank.
