A Far Journey

I met a man who journeyed far,
And he talked of the things he had done,
Of the places that he has been,
And how he had so much fun.

The buildings so tall, Oh the mighty walls,
The momuments to honor someone,
Such sights to see...
Such wonders under the sun!

But the things he remembered the most,
Are the people along the way,
The smiles, the warmth, the friendships,
To brighten your day.

Lands near and far, whose people are
So different in so many ways,
Than the life we have known,
And the ways we have all been raised...

Some tip there hats, some bowed their heads.
They all had thier own way to just say...
Hello my friend...
Sure hope you have a nice day.

Yes, the things he remembered the most
Are the people along the way.
The smiles, and thier friendships
That brighten your day.

And this man who journeyed far, he told me...
You know I have been all around,
I have found that my consists of...
The friends that I have found.
