Long and Winding

Yes, it's been a long, long, road
Winding through the years;
Sometimes bringing happiness,
Many times of tears.

I've seen the noontime darker than
The midnight's empty sky.
I've had the sun appear, again,
While tears still filled my eyes.

I've had a little company.
They stayed a little while.
But when the fork came in the road,
They left with wave and smile.

I've planted flowers by the way
But never saw them bloom
And, yet, I've smelled the sweetest scent
In someone else's room.

I've caught the hand of one in need.
I've had to go away.
I've wished for just one hour that
Relief would come and stay.

I've known some friends (so dear, so wise)
That brightened up the day.
My tears fell by the bucketfuls
When parting came our way.

The winding road has led me well,
With One beside to stand;
Sometimes offering sweet support,
Sometimes just touching my hand.

The road that winds, the road that's long,
Must one day reach it's goal
And welcome home a weary one;
A Heaven for his soul ...

Where we will never wander
Or falter on the way,
Where Sonlight gives us happiness
For an everlasting day!
