Sometimes you feel so far away,
distance from all the action of the play,
unable to grasp signinficance,
marking the plot with diffident dismay,
standed at centre stage,
scrabbling through your diary for a lost
page: unsure of the dream.
Kicking a stone across the beach,
aching for love and comfort out of reach,
the way ahead seems to be so bleak,
there's no-one with any friendship left to
speak or show you any relation

must walk this road,
unknown in our purpose,

and home ever calling us on.
We've been waiting here so long,
all of our hands joined in hope,
holding the weight on the rope,
all of us pilgrims.
