Distant Mile


We should be glad for distant things,
For beauty ‘round the bend;
For highways that lead on and on
With never any end.

Be glad for goals just out of reach,
The challenge of a star,
The glory of a distant light
That beacons from afar.

For hopes and dreams are built on
That enchanted distant mile,
And far-off bright horizons
Make the road today worthwhile.

—Helen Lowrie Marshall

Enjoy today.
Achieve today.
Tomorrow is promised to no one!
