May The Road Rise To Meet You

May the road rise to meet you
and bring happiness your way.
May love always surround you
keeping you warm with each day.
May troubles always avoid you
as you travel on your way.

May the road rise to meet you
with first summer rays.
May your world always be
the focus of the one that loves thee.
May your heart be shared with kindness
and love from everyone.

May the road rise to meet you
as each season comes to call.
May your life never feel discord
within anything you want to do.
May the road rise to meet you
your whole life through.

    Hello David! Do you know when I read that title I had an image of a pished person faling flat on their face! lol The story of my life! the whole way through! I like the repetition in each verse here, it reinforces the concrete under foot. Comforting, encouraging and making the journey so much easier. Just what happens with friends like you David!

    Happy Halloween my friend.

    Smiling at you

    Tai, up and at those demons! lol (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
