As you travel through life, there are always those times
When decisions just have to be made -
When the choices are hard and solutions seem scarce
And the rain seems to soak your parade!
There are some situations where all you can do
Is to simply let go and move on,
Gather courage together and choose a direction
That carries you toward a new dawn.
So pack up your troubles and take a step forward,
The process of change can be tough
But think about all the excitement ahead
If you can be stalwart enough!
There could be adventures you never imagined
Just waiting around the next bend
And wishes and dreams just about to come true
In ways you can't yet comprehend!
Perhaps you'll find friendships that spring from new interests
As you challenge your status quo
And learn there are so many options in life
And so many ways you can grow!
Perhaps you'll go places you never expected
And see things that you've never seen
Or travel to fabulous, faraway worlds
And wonderful spots in between!
Perhaps you'll find warmth and affection and caring -
A "somebody special" who's there
To help you stay centred and listen with interest
To stories and feelings you share.
Perhaps you'll find comfort in knowing your friends
Are supportive of all that you do,
And believe that whatever decisions you make -
They'll be the right choices for you!
So keep putting one foot in front of the other
And taking your life day by day,
There's a brighter tomorrow that's just down the road,
Don't look back - you're not going that way!

"Don't Look Back" added to site Friday February 2, 2001

It is with some regret that today I have made a decision to walk down a new pathway.  To those I have met along the way, I wish you every happiness, to those special people that I have formed a very special bond with, I know each of us will find new horizons, and accomplish great feats if we "Don't Look Back". 

God bless you and those you love.
