Flat land - as far as the eye could see
on my way to southern Alberta
to visit our daughter and family earlier in spring!
Stretched out before you this highway of life
Brings scenic outlooks along the way.
Your eyes on the goal and it’s forward you go
To travel the distance assigned for today.
You may look backwards, but just a brief look,
The mirrors will show just where you have been.
A glance is enough to keep your perspective
Now you’ll be aware of what’s closing in.
There’s been much construction; there’s been death and trauma
As you’ve traveled this long and tortuous road.
But the key to a safe and enjoyable trip
Is to leave the past back there and lighten your load.
You’re responsible now to forge on ahead
Obey all the signs for your safety and good.
No more ‘if only’, you must not go back.
Just please make sure that you're on the right road.
