There are moments on my journey when the load becomes too much;
When the road becomes too rocky; when my dreams are out of touch;
When I search in vain for certainties of who, and why, and when,
And I feel the pain and loneliness again.
But there’s always someone watching, when I falter on my way,
To lift me up, to comfort me, to help me face the day;
To spend a little time with me, share friendship in a smile,
And I gain the strength to carry on a while.
So I thank the people in my life who lighten up my load,
Who have shared parts of the journey, walked beside me on the road;
For my friends, and for my family, who bring me so much joy,
I thank you for the memories that time cannot destroy.
