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.
