My Guide

The love we have, the places we go
Wandering on through the fallen snow
Attempting to escape we cross the sands
As we make our way to the promised lands

The journey has been long and full of woe
But with you by my side I will always know
That we shall overcome our trials bleak
Until we both discover what we seek

Even though we must cross this endless blight
It is because of you I survive each night
As I pass endlessly throughout the taint
It is because of you I don’t keel over and faint

I have crossed many miles searching for the lands I seek
Climbed through valleys and ascended the highest peak
Trekked through jungle to meet the morning dew
And I would not have seen these wonders were it not for you

While my travels must continue ever on
I will not stop until all hope is gone
And while I may occasionally stumble in dismay
You will always guide me to a brand new day
