I am the lonely traveler
Many miles I have come
I've traveled by bus, by boat and train
And now and then my thumb

I haven't a clue as to what I'll find
When I reach the end of my road
Each passing day I sit and wonder
What the next day it will hold

The day's are long and tiring
Upon these roads I walk
If only I had a companion
With someone whom I could talk

For I am the lonely traveler
My days of youth gone by
There's not a lot of time for me
Till I'm traveling to the sky

So onward till my journey ends
I've come to this conclusion
That every day I've lived my life
Has just been an illusion

Nicely done. Being a BUM has its advantages...no taxes. The rhythem works and the poem flows. I wonder if you meant "road" instead of "goal?" Thanx for posting.

Oh I can really feel the lonliness in this....I hope you really don't see life as an illusion....I wish you more happiness to come! I'm with INclan, I think "road" would work good there....? Nice job as usual...
