    The Journey of Life

    Oh, take a step outside your door
    Look around, then take one more
    Stroll beyond your garden gate
    Wander on, no need to wait

    Walk along the grassy lane
    Shelter under trees from rain
    Help yourself to fruit that falls
    Hear the birds that sweetly call

    Take a stroll through meadow grass
    There's no need for walking fast
    Breathe the scent of wild flowers
    Keep on journeying for hours

    Watch the little butterflies
    Many colours flutter by
    Trail the path of bumble bees
    Buzzing round the cherry trees

    Will you cross that stream that flows?
    Will you follow where it goes?
    Maybe walk into the woods?
    Climb up hills where few have stood?

    There'll be many folk you'll meet
    Take your time to stop and greet
    Before the day has reached its end
    Perhaps you will have found a friend?

    It doesn't matter where you go
    You can journey fast or slow
    Many things come with each new day
    Savour what may come your way

    Oh, life's a journey we all make
    Long the path that we must take
    Look behind and you will see
    You've gained some wondrous memories
