I Am Going On A Journey

I am going on a journey,
Won't you come along?
I need someone to help me.
A person big and strong.


I'm walking on my journey
But my feet are very small.
Can you stand beside me,
And catch me if I fall?


At times when I can't keep up
With life and all its fears,
Can you put me on your shoulders
And wipe away the tears?


When the steps I take are not big enough
And it's hard for me to grow
I know I can depend on you
To let me take it slow.


I'm going on a journey,
Please, won't you walk with me?
I need someone who understands
The place where I should be.


I promise when the road is tough
And you want to turn back home.
I will hold your hand real tight,
So you won't feel so alone.


I'm going on a journey
I don't know where it ends,
But if we walk together,
We can always be best friends.


And when the journey's over
And we find where we should be.
I know that you will be so glad,
You took this path with me.


I'm going on a journey,
Please, won't you come along?
I need someone to guide me
A parent—big & strong.
