On The Path of Life We Tread

On the path of life we tread,

 in it way above our heads,

 the mind cannot comprehend,

 the meaning of what a friend,

 truly is on the path of life we tread,

Though life is cold and lonely,

 empty and mysterious,

 unpredictable yet so predictable it's almost insane,

 as we hop aboard the plane,

 flying toward an unpredictable future,

 fearing, doubting, critical are we of what life holds ahead,

 yet through it all,

 through all the dread,

 we live in comfort,

 for we all have a friend,

 a friend to share the coldness of life,

 a friend to share the fear and the doubt,

 a friend to help us understand just what life is all about.
