I need courage for the journey|
Strength to find the way
A place where I can find some rest
Though I know I cannot stay
My work is still not finished
There's so much that's left to do
I'm carrying a heavy load
Will I ever make it through?
There's respite in the darkness
My heart beats strong and true
I'm off again at morning
Before the sun can melt the dew
Autumn leaves swirl all around me
Gold and crimson catch my eye
This breeze comes right from heaven
Like a silent lullabye
How long have I been traveling?
How much distance is still left?
Will I meet another stranger?
Or find a friend instead
If you should see me passing by
Please say a prayer for me
And I will do the same for you
For who knows where our roads lead
Karen Shaw Matteson
The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop away from you
like the leaves of Autumn.
