Have you ever been to Edinburgh, Perth or Aberdeen?
Or have you been to London to see Her Majesty the Queen?
Have you flown over Continents or Cities by the score?
Spoken to US Presidents, knocked on dignitaries doors?
Have you followed in others' footsteps, to places quite unique?
So fatigued and tired, that you could hardly speak?
Have you listened to the music from many distant lands,
Played by Pipes and Drums and other interesting bands?
Have you been to far off Countries, where tragedy abounds?
Seen tsunami disasters or shells begin to pound?
Have you walked some streets with pleasure, admired them with glee?
Entered a fine Olde Restaurant for a lovely cup of tea?
Have you wandered in some valley, by a lovely flowing stream?
Or sat beside the seaside in a myriad of dreams?
Have you watched a sporting item or an entertaining show,
Where professional ability left a pleasant afterglow?
Have you considered all the options, which put you to the test?
Or do you really think that you have done your very best?
Life can be quite marvellous, tragic, sad or kind!
It's really what you make it, that gives you peace of mind!
