There Will Be Mountains

Let me tell you, child, before you grow About your life, things you should know There will be times you need to contemplate loss There will be mountains to climb and rivers to cross Each moment is precious, so enjoy every one Live for the moment and follow the Son. He won’t forsake you in your darkest time There will be mountains, He’ll help you climb. Teardrops and laughter, sunshine and rain Love and happiness, heartaches and pain You’ll face all of these in your own day Each is a blessing in its own way Facing those challenges, crossing those streams You’ll find special moments living your dreams Sometimes you’ll be angry and sometimes you’ll stray There will be mountains that stand in your way You’ll look to Jesus when you’re in need of a Friend There will be mountains that you will ascend.

Dear Vince, I was drawn by the title, and I'm glad I had a chance to read your inspiring poem. Children today will not have the same lifestyles you and I enjoyed as we grew up. And I certainly agree with your comments on the state of the U.S. political scene today. Best wishes, Carolyn

I like this poem, Vincent. For some reason it reminded me of the classic song from the equally classic movie: The Sound of Music - Climb Every Mountain. Every time I hear that amazing Rodgers & Hammerstein song I get goosebumps - the lyrics inspire and stimulate - and so did this poem. Wishing you and your family happiness and joy in 2009. Peace always, John
