There are no guarantees in life
For mother, child, husband or wife,
We all have travelled on life’s road
Unburdened or with heavy load
There is no crowd to cheer us on
No magic words to lean upon
No tragic curse that we’re aware
Or law that says what must be fair.
We understand that on each path
There can be times of doubt or wrath
Yet often seems so very sweet
When hope and joy with love compete
I do not know the why of it
And pray most times that we shall fit !
