  1. Jeremy Webb
    Along life's winding road, we tread,
    Encountering souls, our paths widespread.
    Each step we take, a story unfolds,
    As we journey through seasons warm and cold.

    Some faces fade, like fleeting light,
    While others linger, through day and night.
    We share our burdens, joys, and fears,
    In laughter's echo, and in silent tears.

    With some, we walk for just a while,
    A fleeting moment, a passing smile.
    Yet in that brief encounter, we find,
    A glimpse of truth, a tie that binds.

    Others stay, through thick and thin,
    Their presence like a soothing kin.
    We share our dreams, our hopes, our strife,
    Navigating the ebb and flow of life.

    Each person leaves a mark, a trace,
    In the tapestry of time and space.
    For every friend, every foe we meet,
    Shapes the journey, makes it complete.

    So let us cherish those we hold,
    On life's road, through stories untold.
    For in the sharing, we find our way,
    Guided by love, come what may.
