Step Forth

The time has come,

I cannot stay.

The hour beckons

I must find my way.


Through good, through bad,

Pain, love and joy

My moment is over

It's time to fly.


Step forth to a new world

With promises afresh.

Soak in the confidence

Of dreams to be met.


Out one doorway

Holding memories of past.

Embrace the pathway;

To life consign.


Walking with pride

Wise in life's ways;

New seas to sail

And new lands to scour.


Hello to the new

Fond Goodbye to the old.

Sing a new song

As new mysteries unfold.
