My Journey

by valmay

I can not change my designated way
Though now I would attempt a change of pace
Where I can take delight in love each day
And spend life's time entwined in your embrace

So while we have to walk our lonely road
I'll set my goal to keep us side by side
And plight my troth that I will share your load
And seek to dry the tears that we have cried

Give thanks to lovers who have gone before
Whose sacrifice has straightened tracks we're on
Who left us so much love in such great store
And faith to follow them where they have gone

And when I'm old I pledge I will stay kind
To smooth the path of those who walk behind
