Default The Road Song

This is a song/poem I wrote a few days ago. My friends say this is a good poem, but I am in need of criticism. This poem has an inner meaning, but I won't tell it so fast. Here it goes:

The road is long the path is dark,
over rock and under tree.
To the sound of wind we hark,
and of streams that never find the sea.

The road is long the path is dark,
till the days come to end.
To the sound of wind we hark,
and of stream that over roads have went.

The mist upon the mountains lay,
in the merry month of May.
The morning fades into the noon,
shining over the flowers of June.

The road is long the path is dark,
at last we come to night of naught.
To the sound of wind we hark,
to find at last the goal we sought.

Evening fades into the night,
the yellow light turns into white,
the stars shine on our heads above,
and weakened is our mortal sight.

The morning fades into the noon,
the sun goes up above our height,
shining on the flowers of June,
to give us courage and unending might.

I walk the path I walk alone,
and far I am a-from my home.
Long have I been strolling ‘bout,
ever since I ventured out.

And since then I have not stopped,
not a-since I left my home
And my might has not yet dropped,
and I walk the road alone.

The road is long the path is dark,
over rock and under tree.
To the sound of wind we hark,
and of streams that never find the sea.

My journey ends in silver glass,
out of time and out of sight,
and so do mortal souls pass,
Into the night into the light.


– Sraph

Out of the Great Sea I have come to you now at the turn of the tide,
and here I will abide until the end of days.

Oooh that's really good is it about a journey through life, or am I thinking on too large a scale? Here are some things I noticed:

-In the last line in the second stanza, should that not be "has went?" Then you may have to change the last word in the 2nd line of that stanza but I just thought it would be better that way.
-Your rhyme scheme was consistent throughout the first few stanzas but then it changed - did you do that intentionally? Just curious.

It was really elegantly written

Yup! The 'journey' is life.

Some mistakes made in this poem are there by purpose, because they are made to sound good, and I did think of changing the second stanza, but then thought that it flows better. The rhyming sequence is in a skipping-stone pattern, and I wrote it like that because it made it sound better.
