All Roads Lead Back To You


Some roads are rough and rocky
Some very narrow to get through
But whatever road I travel
It always leads back to you
You are my beacon light
That shines through every storm
You are there by the fire
That keeps our house a home
You walk with me each day
Through happiness and pain
You are my sheltering umbrella
Whenever there is rain
No matter where I travel
Where ever in the world I roam
I have the inner knowledge
That I will never lose my way
Because all roads lead back to you
And the place we call our home

    A wonderful tribute to love, this is a beautiful song straight from your heart. You are truly a poet, and a wise and wonderful a mate you must be too! Life can be difficult, but if you have love, you are that much stronger for it.
    Hugs,

    I found it! Knew that would happen.... must've been having a wee blind moment! This is gorgeous aswell, it shows that when there are hard times we should look to the one that is always there, I'll take that from this, a lesson to be learned and listen to. Thanks for sharing. You are a wonderful scribe David. HG: -) xx (Report) Reply

    I loved this straightforward emotionally honest poem. No airs and graces or tricks. Just well chosen words and metaphor direct from a poetic heart. Homely, evocative and excellent. jim (Report) Reply

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
