The road of life you have walked is behind you,
As you look back you see the hills and troughs
That have brought you to this day.
You can see where life has been so wonderful
But interspersed with those moments hurt.
Others have joined you on your road
Bringing goodness and love to your life,
Some walking with you for most of it
In that never ending love until they leave,
Leave for another path that has called them.
That is when you must realise it is your path,
And yours alone.
Others may walk it with you,
But nobody can walk it for you.
