I guess this is kinda depressing. Lonely for sure.

The Road
It’s a lonely road to travel
Paved with stones, a path of gravel
Heart is aching, strengths unravel
With the weight of the load

Seems I’ve walked and walked for decades
Feet are aching, cut on rock blades
Hacked from bitter words cascades
And no one shares the load

Oh this weary road I’ve traveled
I have walked it for years
Yet no friend have I found on it
Not a one to share tears
It’s the cry my heart is screaming
For a friend I’m dreaming
It’s a lonely road to travel
When no one shares the load

A friend’s love would brighten the days
Lift my head and clear all this haze
Clouding my view with dark grays
Yet no one shares the road

If they fall down, I’d help them stand
Be refreshing in burning sand
Strengthen each other as we trek this land
But not one friend I know

Oh this weary road I’ve traveled
I have walked it for years
Yet no friend have I found on it
Not a one to share tears
It’s the cry my heart is screaming
For a friend I’m dreaming
It’s a lonely road to travel
When no one shares the load

It’s a lonely road to travel
When your heart crumbles like gravel
Watching your strength unravel
With the weight of the load

Will the road ahead be barren
Always ring with cry of raven
Will no soul come be my haven
Come walk along the road

Psalm 119:11
Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
