Roaming Wanderer  

I wake up and ponder "where am I?"
Or is it "where was I?," or "where to now?"
My daily search for what? and where?,
My daily questions when? and how?
My trek across the many seas
the barren lands, the forest trees.
Has yielded naught so far. Oh well!
I cannot stop, I will prevail.
I do not know but I will win.
What? you may ask, I wish I knew,
I'll wander on, I will not fail.
My quest for what, when, where and how?
Is somewhere o'er the ho-ri-zon.
So on and on and on I go
thru sun and rain and sleet and snow.
I am so close yet far away
I walk by night and sleep by day.
It seem so near but now I know:
