Going Down Life’s Road

Going down life’s road …

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.

    Very nicely penned, Rasma. You have a good subject, for each person who comes into our life is a teacher, meaning we learn something of benefit even if it is a bad experience, we have it as a lesson. Well done on this piece.
