The highest mountain that man ever climbs,
Is the one given him at his birth...
Forever a challenge for all of his years,
A mixture of tears and of mirth.
 
Each  new test he faces is part of the plan,
Those will show what he is made of...
There are good times and sad ones, and some in between,
A mixture of hurt and of love.
 
It's the top of the mountain, still out of reach,
That beckons and urges him on...
No slowing from stumbles and bruises he feels,
No stopping with things that go wrong.
 
For years he must struggle, continue ahead,
Those pass all too quickly we know...
Yet with summit before him, he presses on,
For a look at what lies down below.
 
The view from the top is breathtaking,
The descent will be easier still...
For he climbed to the top of his mountain,
And not just another small hill.
