Moving On

Sometimes I forget

we follow a path

and must share the road.

We do it our way

but it’s not the way

and we’re not alone

So listen we must

to the call respond

and serve the have-to

We so want to stay

to stop the journey

and linger awhile

The path ahead is

unclear and obscured

and it twists and turns

Oh why can’t it be

the straight and narrow

no rights and no lefts

Despite aching hearts

we have to answer

and take the next step

Use our eyes to see

and our ears to hear

be better than right

Sadly we move on

happy to have met

those who share the road

Thankful for support

and resting assured

in shared hearts and prayers

So we continue

together apart

different paths same road

Let’s enjoy the walk

this is not good-bye

It is hello…

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
