The path, journey,
The ups and downs,
And on it goes, through this path,
A on-going gradual path,
Into the sunlight,
The path walked,
Many times, and never simultaneously.
The times shared, the sun felt.
The sound of the guitar in the backdrop.
The sun setting on the horizon,
To be followed by night, then day.
The ongoing times, of sun and bright feelings.
The need to remember, the need to hold on.
An emotional rollercoaster,
Of ecstasy and emptiness.
The times gone through.
The experiences felt.
The sun shining down on the ground.
On the warm face,
The happiness and sadness.
Both at one.
Together in feeling.
Both making us human.
This is the ongoing path.
The confusion and doubt, with the aftertaste of faith.
The need for meaning,
The meaning behind being.
The grace of living, loving, being and making use of the finite time.
The time to be spent,
That path taken. That path of life.
The path we all walk.
