Step Bravely, Mile By Mile

Sunny Forest Path, step bravely

We started on the journey

With wonder at the world,

We skipped along with heads held high,

Our flag of hope unfurled.

Enthusiasm filled our days

As optimism grew,

We had so many plans and dreams

(Did some of them come true?)

But then our path grew steep and rough

And clouds obscured the sun,

As problems raised their worried heads

We lost our sense of fun.

But love was there through troubled times

To ease the hurt away,

With caring hands and gentle touch

It helped us through each day.

So as the road goes winding on,

Step bravely, mile by mile,

Through sun and showers, hope and joy,

The journey is worthwhile!

And for all our thoughts, pick up a copy of The Friendship Book 2018!
