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!
