All Roads Lead Back To You - Poem by David Harris

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,
    Lee

    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

    Wow, I love this poem David! It has such a great message and the title is perfect.Great imagery and just a well written easy read that warms the heart because of the message behind it.It is one of those poems that when you read it...you wish you had wrote it.(This is for sure the case for me!) ((Smile))

    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
