A Lesson Taught

Updated on April 15, 2011

A Lesson Learned

How can I ask for something more

When I have everything I wished and simply adore

I looked beyond my decades on a projected screen

And saw the grass growing sadly pale green

 

 

A life was chosen of a woman so blue

Longing for a touch that forever grew

I drifted away on to a far away land

 And found myself drowning in its deadly quick sand

 

 

Along came a hand and pulled me with force

And taught me a lesson on a living life course

I tried to sneak out a few times during his lesson

A reply he made” If you walk out now forever you’ll be guessen”

 

 

I sat back down and hung my head low

When he lifted my chin and said forever you’ll glow

Hold on to my hand and never let go

Walk with me and you’ll always blossom and grow

 

 

Do not second guess this decision you made

Because a threat to yourself human will fade

You have come this far and fought a heathen battle

Fasten yourself and mount your saddle

 

 

A life you have made for yourself and you’ve learned

Some valuable lessons and happiness now earned

Let’s walk hand in hand and you will see

That I will never let you drown in water at sea
