    The Journey

    My most treasured possession

    You ask?

    The only one I can take

    On a long, long journey?

    You recommend

    It shouldn’t be heavy

    Or cumbersome?

    Nor fragile and delicate

    ‘Cause it’s a long way?

    The road could be rough

    And the weather stormy?

    But some days will be

    Sunny and balmy

    Won’t they?

    That’s a tall order,

    My friend,

    For, as you say,

    It’s a long, long way.


    I’ll bring love.
