The world at my feet

Nothing beats that feeling deep
of joy and pride - can almost weep 
of happiness, that is, please know- 
we made it to the top - somehow
feet are tired, hearts beat fast 
our joy - the memory will always last

'cause what a feeling, to be on top 
after hiking, all non stop
through rain and storm we made it through
we climbed that mountain, me and you 

every time I get up there 
all I can do is sit and stare:
- the world in all its glory: the sea and the sky 
and I can't stop thinking - how lucky am I 

to have a day like that 
what a gift 

This is just where I want to be  
in the arms of that someone next to me

on that top 
and with the world at our feet

how lucky am I

enjoy the day
enjoy the moment
......getting there......

.....being there....

PS: There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.....:-)
