Life's Trace

written by: Ken Allan Dronsfield



Someone whispered my name!

The tone a low, but gentle voice.

It said, "search out your path,

your course, your destination and

seek a walkway to your dreams."

We learn during our lives that the

important thing is not the arrival

at your destination, but it's to

enjoy the experience of travel on long

and winding roads from here to there.

The nights and days, winds and tropical

bays; lush green valleys and the snow

covered peaks of the tall mountain tops.

Paths you todden or where sails or wings

have taken you. Whether your course be

green, blue or white, it's a path that

connects our entire planet Earth. Your

trails are made of freedoms won and lost,

of nature exploring and so ever changing

the bonds friendships come and gone

and the idyllic binding of hearts afire.

Our pathway followed upon life's trace.
