We’ve walked together many miles
Upon this road – called Life –
And by-the-by I’ve learned some things
Some good – some not so nice.
Life offers us both Likes and Loves
They’re out there – everywhere –
So hush – and look and listen – please
Be still – and step with care.
For God has given everything
From Eyes – to Grand Design –
And puts us on a different Path
With different Peaks to climb.
Together – Rivers wide we crossed
Together – Roads we walked
With every mile – we sang and laughed
And cried – then barely talked.
Rivers – mountains – crossed them all
Now hushed – I step with care
I drank too deeply – then I cried
To learn of life’s Despair.
I reawoke – one gracious morn
To see the Dawn – out there –
In subtle Hues – the Darkness left
And – Light – now Everywhere.
