My life follows a path I often cannot comprehend.
Sometimes I’m full of questions, at other times I just flow with the current
Shaking my head and asking,
“Smooth sailing, they say?” “No, not at all!”
My life is always full of surprises
And filled with many twist and turns.
With each sigh, tear, heartache, there is also laughter and abundant joy.
I follow this course deftly walking, running, stumbling, or cruising along
Breathlessly at times, but always trusting
I can pick myself up and keep on going.
“Be strong they tell me”, as I stop myself from letting the feelings of uncertainty
Fill my mind with fear when the road seems rocky.
I reach within for inner
strength, to help me through when the path seems rough, knowing I have the support of
many whose paths have crossed with mine as I sit, chat and talk about this and that.
Each person, each experience, each serendipitous moment is precious,
The glow of my life made beautiful
As I am cocooned by their hope, love and faith.
