Our Journey

Half the world is sleeping,
half the world’s awake
Half can hear their hearts beat,
Half just hear them break

I am but a traveler, in most every way
Ask me what you want…to know

What a journey it has been
And the end is not in sight
But the stars are out tonight
and they’re bound to guide my way

When they’re shining on my life
I can see a better day
I won’t let the darkness in,
what a journey it has been…

I have been to sorrow
I have been to bliss
Where I’ll be tomorrow,
I can only guess

Through the darkest desert
Through the deepest snow,
Foward, always foward, I go…

What a journey it has been
And the end is not in sight
But the stars are out tonight
and they’re bound to guide my way

When they’re shining on my life
I can see a better day
I won’t let the darkness in,
what a journey it has been…

Fowards, always foward..
Onward, always up..
Catching every drop of hope
In my empty cup

What a journey it has been
And the end is not in sight
But the stars are out tonight
and they’re bound to guide my way

When they’re shining on my life
I can see a better day
I won’t let the darkness in,
what a journey it has been…

What a journey it has been…

-The Journey, composed by Julie Gold

I borrowed Lea Salonga’s first album since being internationally famous back when I was still burning the midnight oil in law school. This particular song was my favorite. It was particularly applicable to our lives then and was a particularly optimistic song. Used to I love optimistic songs because with the adversity we faced back then, I thought optimistic songs were all we had. So you can just image what we were facing…

I heard this song again during my daughter’s graduation from prep yesterday. I have to admit hearing it again was particularly poignant. With what we have particularly gone through these past few years, hearing that song again made me look back on what we, or I in partular, have gone through. And what a journey it has been, and the end is not in sight. But the stars are out tonight and they’re bound to guide my way.
