The Road Ahead.

I look back at my life,

My long, long life

Seeing the road that I travelled.

Its ups and downs stretching,

Stretching back so far,

And I know,

Know that I have had a good life,

With a wonderful family,

Good friends,

And a good working life.

That road had its odd dips

But each one I surmounted

And I can now sit here,

Sit here writing these words

With the love for life in my heart

And knowing that there is more,

There is more of my good life,

More of my good life to come,

As the road I am travelling stretches,

Stretches a long way ahead.

    Yes, an extremely long road behind us tow, going back to the dinosaurs, and in front of us two. A blip in the road at 1066, when I turned up! lol.

      So true Orchi and there is still a long road ahead.


      • orchidee

        Oh why could not that event have been obliterated from history - tear out the page in the book where I turned up?! It all went downhill from then on. lol

        And may it continue a while longer.

        • Goldfinch60

          I certainly hope so Blue.


        • Teddy.15

          And how lucky are we to share your joy each day. 💖

          • Goldfinch60

            Very true Teddy, we are so lucky.

            "it's a long long road
            with many a winding path
            that leads us to who knows where
            we'll get there" (Hollies-he aint heavy)

            Wherever it is we'll get there... and I know that we are likeminded about it and will be thankful.

            • Goldfinch60

              We certainly will d a and when we meet I'll buy you a pint.

              Good write, Andy.
              More in the rear view than the road ahead.

              • Goldfinch60

                So true but I look ahead and cannot see the end of my road.
