Is all it takes to accomplish a goal
Traveling across unmapped terrain,
I move toward a distant snow capped crest,
Step by step I advance upon my goal,
Only at sunset dare I pause to rest.

A whispered prayer and then I struggle on,
Facing each difficulty with a joyous soul,
Only at sunset dare I pause to rest,
Step by step I advance upon my goal.

Each day I refocus on the mountaintop,
One day at a time is my spirit’s quest,
Step by step I advance upon my goal,
Only at sunset dare I pause to rest.
