There is many a tumble on life’s long road

There is many a weary mile

Where your burden is heavy and tiring your load,

Lighten it all with a smile

Palatial or humble what’ er your abode

No matter where you reside

There is a prize for all of us at the end of the road

So give it a welcoming smile

We go searching for treasures to lay by in store

Perhaps they give joy for a time

But we leave them all at the end of the road

But we can always carry a smile

The kings and the nobles bereft of their crowns

Gave earthly glory its pomp and its power

While the humble and lowly exhalted on high

At the end of the road how joyous their smile

Allan Livingston
