That One Mile

When day turns into night
And night turns into light
Time goes on and so does life
But once in a while
You do find a mile
On which a walk feels like an eternity
At that time you realize
Things that truly matter materialize
There is but one question lingers
Why me and not others?

When day turns into night
And night turns into light
Time goes on and so does life
And you find yourself trotting
Along the mile you find yourself crawling
The world is never again the same
You see it thru a completely new frame
But you start to get the feeling
That you'll manage to keep on living
That one mile that feels like forever
Has changed you and the ones you hold dear

But as long as day turns into night
And night continues to turn into light
There's nothing else to do but to go on
For as long as you have God in your heart,
And as long as you have your loved ones near
There is no mile that you can't conquer
