You're tired, you're exhausted.
Your get up and go has gone.
But someone you love needs you,
So you take a deep breath and keep on.
Your head and your heart are aching.
The path seems lonely and long.
But the look on their face makes you pick up the pace,
So you take one more step and keep on.
You are at the end of your tether.
The urge to give up is strong.
But something they say helps you face one more day,
So you pick yourself up and keep on.
And no-one will give you a medal,
Or sing you a victory song.
But I raise my hat and I'll raise a glass and say
"Keep on keeping on!!"
