I am a simple traveller
passing through this time
Leaving little bits of me
on mountains that I climb

No life is just a fairytale
although we wish it so
we dream of what is perfect
but live with what we know

Behind each door is magic
we need to see it clear
To find what makes us happy
and ward off what is fear

Each day, it is a blessing
we must live it to our fill
Is what our God has granted
in giving us free will

Be careful what you wish for,
as greed can leave its mark
To drag us from the light
and shroud us in the dark

Beauty is in the simple
in love and friendship true
As life will take you by the hand,
from buds to flowers grew

So be a simple traveller
and pass within this time
Leaving all what you do learn
on mountains you will climb

For others will walk behind you
and see what you have shown
To help realize the beauty
from buds to flowers grown..
Our greatest fear is not in the dying, but in being forgotten...

You have a superb talent for rhyme that I've not seen in many. I fancy myself as having strong skills in that area too. I think you may be better at it... :jawdrop:

This is just beautiful. There really aren't other words to sum it up. The best I've read from you hands down. I especially love these lines "No life is just a fairytale/although we wish it so/we dream of what is perfect/but live with what we know." It so perfectly expresses what I take from the poem.
