Life's Highway

Speeding along life's highway With the scenery flashing by Must stop and smell the roses There's more than meets the eye We miss the tiny intricacies Subtleties that mean so much Life's delightful wee treasures The warmth of a babies touch A gentle breeze at daybreak Welcoming a brand new day Puffy white billowy clouds Trees as they swing and sway Life's a highway, enjoy the ride The end comes far too soon As you look for it's hidden meaning You reach life's final swoon Reflecting back over the years Of the good times and the bad You realize it's been a blast my friends Thankful for the life you've had With heartaches and some sorrows To get through it all unscathed Is nothing short of a miracle In your memories you're left to bathe © Jack Ellison 2012
