Life roads lead us to many a place
Where we make life decisions
Of people we will embrace
And relationships that bring joy or derision.
There are back roads where we go back
To places and people who have blessed our life.
Sometimes back roads take us
To feelings that brought us joy and happiness free from strife.
There are side roads open to us
That offer opportunities to enrich our life and thus
Grow from the experiences we had
Making our life full and our hearts glad.
There are roads that lead to despair
And I wouldn't want to go there
For my Heavenly Father is leading me
To roads that lead to hope and joy for eternity.
There is just one road I want to travel on.
It is the straight and narrow one
That leads to my heavenly home
And upon that road I have begun.
Many roads of life are open for us to choose.
Some lead to life everlasting
And others lead to life for us to lose.
I choose the one leading to life eternal
and it is mine for the asking.
