Somewhat lost, and long misguided
weary traveler stops to rest
many miles and fears subsided
many stories since confessed.

a glance upon the road behind
brings comfort that as soon departs
a road that wasnít very kind
a road that broke so many hearts

and traveler with eyes still gleaming
holding on, but begging sleep
offered up the chance for dreaming
into worlds of conscience deep

weary traveler resting soundly
íneath the shelter of a tree
basks within his thoughts profoundly
feeding fruits of memory

Paths that he had come across
people that had shared their grace
dice that he had come to toss
challenges he had to face

love that he had took for granted
times that he had long forgot
imaginations he enchanted
imaginations he did not

miles of footprints in the road
brought back in the travelers mind
years of honors long bestowed
years of life he left behind

weary traveler eyes now glowing
wonders what heís resting for
and with wind at his back blowing
traveler moves on once more.

What a beautiful metaphor for life... beautiful and tragic, maybe the more beautiful for its tragedy.  Bravo! -wen

Well done!  Your words convey the traveling experience wonderfully, been there a time or two.
