To the tune of “Thirsty Boots” by Eric Anderson
The future’s hidden by the clouds of circumstance unknown.
And neither of us knows how far to plan to walk alone.
But we are bound together by a spider’s silken thread.
Whose gentle touch reminds us of the path together tread.
So cast off your dark concerns and rest in the sun.
The challenges that we confront transform us one by one.
And when endurance graces with a taste of victory.
We lift our hearts and Love spills out
for other hearts to see.
Those who’ve bles’d us with relationships with challenges sublime
We thank, no matter what we thought about them at the time.
Friends, lovers, mentors, teachers all
You’ve given us your best.
We draw on it with gratitude
When facing every test.
