Pathways twisting and turning down long winding roads,
     burdens happy and light, and then dark heavy loads 
Wild winter winds chill but leave smooth untouched snows,
     weird dreams raising up hopes, then spread cold fears and woes

When your bed seems a ship cast adrift in the night, 
     worries seize you that lifes an unwinnable fight
Winsome music of home fills eyes shining with tears,   
     wet silvery fish leaving sad as they cheer

We should never forget we don’t travel alone,
    that our flight path is one many others have flown
Hear the signs they have posted in verse and in song, 
    without fear, we can follow and will not go wrong. 

Weary path that seemed endless, now journey well done,
     when the gold at your goal, was your own special one

    Welcome to Poetry Soup John, I like how you use juxtaposed emotions, happy / sad, storm, calmness etc to play over each other like and waves on an ocean. I especially liked the use of silver and gold as cold sadness then close the poem with warmth. Good luck with your writing!
