I Recall

I recall, not so long ago
Being a family man, I could feel my life in flow
A straight line it was never to be, for forks started to appear
Stronger I thought I'd be, having my children near

Forward I peered, into an unknown abyss
To look for brighter pastures in hope that life is bliss
Many sleeps were taken whilst there were many sleepless nights
Round and round I mourned, trying to believe whats right

They tell you in these situations that a corner you will turn
It's the turning of that corner that can lead a past to burn
To meet another person, where one looks so far ahead
It's the steps that need to take you there, eventually their said

Amidst the trials of life, to the turning of these days
It's how brave we are to face them, and allow ones life to say
Many greys we call life's clouds, become our peripheral
It's to desire these clouds to dismiss, and let our living be all
