I travel down this rocky road
A smooth journey it will not be
This one thing that keeps me going
Is knowing that you are right beside me
Holding a shield in front of me I am protected
Defended from life’s demons
The path is blocked from time to time
But the light of hope guides my way
Though I may falter on my quest
I know that I will reach my destination
Stronger, happier and wiser for it
