Oh, take a step outside your door
Look around, then take one more
Stroll beyond your garden gate
Wander on, no need to wait

Walk along the grassy lane
Shelter under trees from rain
Help yourself to fruit that falls
Hear the birds that sweetly call

Take a stroll through meadow grass
There's no need for walking fast
Breathe the scent of wild flowers
Keep on journeying for hours

Watch the little butterflies
Many colours flutter by
Trail the path of bumble bees
Buzzing round the cherry trees

Will you cross that stream that flows?
Will you follow where it goes?
Maybe walk into the woods?
Climb up hills where few have stood?

There'll be many folk you'll meet
Take your time to stop and greet
Before the day has reached its end
Perhaps you will have found a friend?

It doesn't matter where you go
You can journey fast or slow
Many things come with each new day
Savour what may come your way

Oh, life's a journey we all make
Long the path that we must take
Look behind and you will see
You've gained some wondrous memories
