This Traveler

This Traveler

A Poem by cynthiabuhainbaello

I'm thankful to God for the  years that passed,
That I made it at sixty-four!
Gold nuggets of lessons I have amassed,
And I do hope that I get more!

The valleys and mountains,  they were steep.
In this journey,  I know I fell.
The times were hard but my eyes I keep
Fixed on the end which I know quite well!

Knees may bleed,  storms may hinder,
The way may be hard and dreary.
But persistence is worn by this traveler
And on my way....I write my story.

I hope when I'm done with my pilgrimage
You'd take time to stop where I've been-
Perhaps my steps slowed,  I was stopped by age,
But the footprints there can be seen!
