Use this song and lyrics as the basis for a piece of writing.
When I get to the end of my road
When there are no more turns left to take
I hope its you who’s there beside me
To help me stop and shuffle on off.
I want that last little bit of my journey
To be as every other part has been
With you my love, beside me laughin’
As we come to the sign, that says road’s end.
For together we travelled far and wide
Across oceans and through foreign lands
Where the ups have always exceeded the downs
When the dawn has meant, lets start it again.
I want to know your hands in mine
To see me off and on my way
With no regrets for we had the best time
We leave a legacy for others to know.
So whether it was the road or our bench
Shouting directions to turn left and right
Or a centred moment watching the world
You and me, the ducks and the cows.
We’ll leave each other content in it all
We had a ball, we did it right
Love we found and played it out
Explored and implored and then cranked it again.
When I come to the end of my road
And your sitting there gently holding my hand
There’ll be no sorrow, no need for tears
We’ll celebrate we had, each day as we did.
