FC: The | Journey
1: To Mommy, | With Love
3: The traveler sets out on his journey on that memorable day, He has prepared all he needs to go on his way
4: It will be a challenge, uphill, this he does know, But the decision's been made- he is ready to go.
5: Although traveling is difficult, he walks with joy and elation, For only by traveling can he reach his destination.
6: She starts out so beautiful, so young and so sweet, Charming anyone she happens to meet.
8: Her suitcase is packed with all the essentials she'll need, Encouragement,love and the confidence to succeed.
10: Those that have made the journey before stand by her side, Supporting her, full of wisdom, their hearts open wide.
12: Timidly at first, she's off, holding herself tall, She gains confidence and quite soon, she's the leader of them all.
14: She knows just where she's heading and just how to go, But with no map to guide, to lead and to show.
16: And then the road diverge- a fork- how is she to know, Where each one will lead, on which should she go?
17: One is worn, well-trodden, security is there, It has been traveled by many- there's nothing to fear.
18: But she chose the one less traveled by- with hardly a footprint, And that choice has made all the difference.
20: It took courage, it took strength! All in a strange land, But behold- now she has the map in her hand!
22: And then she meets up with a partner to lift each other through, There's no doubt that the journey is much easier with two.
24: Someone to light the way when the path is dark and bleak, Someone to give strength when the other is weak.
26: She wants to create beauty, so she starts planting seeds, She waters and takes care, she tends and she feeds.
28: As each seed blossoms and into a flower it grows, She gives each what it needs, she understands and she knows-
30: Some need shade, some need light, and some just need air, And each one is thriving for she's always there.
32: And although the path is difficult and the climbing is rough, She has more she wants to give- it's never enough.
34: And then the path leas somewhere new- a desert they pass by- Everything is wilted, so parched and so dry.
35: And she's there to quench their thirst, to give life, to feed, Drawing from her own fountain of truth to give others in need.
36: So many lives have been changed- "Its all HER", they all say, All because she passed through a desert as she went on her way.
38: And then her seeds are bringing new seeds, and a garden has grown, It's beauty is magnificent- all from the seeds she has sown.
40: And each new flower still stretches it's stem towards her light, For the love and the care that help it grow right.
42: And still she is traveling, climbing higher in her quest, To understand each sign on the map and fulfill it her best.
44: Mountain climbing brings challenges- she treks up the hill, But her courage, her strength and her smile are ever present still.
46: And then there, at the top, she understands anew, That only now can she turn around and take in the view.
48: And although only halfway there- and the sun's shining bright, She can already see how far she has come in it's light
50: The desert, her garden, her chosen path- all so clear, Yes the beauty is breathtaking from way way up here.
