Yes, I am a traveler of life,
And the journey is long; the twists and turns are many,
And the road never so plain. The ups and downs are heady,
They promise an eventful journey!
Many the roadside scenes have I seen:
A group of noisy children, grubby but keen!
A couple of geese waddling across the road.
Yes, I am a traveler of Life and have seen it all!
The addict stands in the centre of a road, directs
Traffic with verve and swerve, unafraid, as
monsters, roaring, bear on him! And sure,
Have I seen it all for I am a traveler of Life!
I see a couple of girls giggle over ice-cream
While two children sleep on mats next to them,
Two children whose parents sell fruits on a cart.
Yes, have I seen it all on my travels of life.
So does my journey speak of sweets and bitters
Sours and hot, all in a single morsels!
I’ve seen the innocent smiles of a child
And the tears of the destitute sitting by the road!
Yes, I’m a traveler of life,
And sure, have I seen it all - the twists
And kinks, dips and rises - eventful
Like a river that flows down a hill!
The weeping of the aggrieved, and the laughter
Of the happy, the anticipation of victory,
And the fear of impending defeat - two faces
Of a coin, that promise a journey eventful enough!
