The steps at first small and unsure

and all at once it becomes a blur

loving living sharing your soul

giving taking losing control

Each step on the journey more of the heart

loving together tearing apart

the push the pull always in motion

following the road whatever the notion

It is not the destination or the end

but to our hearts the journey does lend

growing losing becoming ever more

no step that comes like the ones before

The journey teaches reaches breaks molds

never knowing what the future holds

never regret remember always seeking what is true

this journey called life for me and you

    “no step that comes like the ones before”

    that is so true… that makes the journey all the more fun. expect the unexpected. come to think of it, life is never boring. you’ll never know what will happen next.

    thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a nice comment.
