I have come down from the mountain

I have come down from the mountain
The mountain of my youthful days
I have stumbled along the rock strewn path
The path of life that leads downward toward my final days
The long journey has rendered me bruised and battered
But I have found a trove of treasure along the way
The love of my wife, my family, and my friends are the treasures
These are the treasures that I hold so dear each and every day
