I Have Seen A Lost Soul
Troublesome As It May Be
Every day it's not uncommon or see many people
Some you see only for the moment
Other people you plan to meet
They are sometimes there or they surprise you by being somwhere else
We all have different goals and dreams
Each of us live with a different purpose
It's not easy to get into my own head
Never mind someone else's
Do we really know why we are put on the earth ?
Are we born just by chance ?
Is there a deeper meaning to life as we know it ?
Are we all part of a greater plan or master design ?
The other day I was out in my yard
Just a few feet in front of me
I couldn't believe my eyes
How could this happen ?
I thought it was virtually impossible
No one I know has ever brought the subject up
In all my life how could it be ?
Was it one of those things that happens and nobody ever mentions
Do we brush it under the rug
Look the other way
Act like it never happened
Why should we ?
My life will be changed forever
Just a few minutes earlier
Everything was going fine
I went out to do some yard work
It had rained last night and the leaves are all wet
The air was still
I felt cold and damp
No sun in the sky
I had an eerie feeling
I tried to dismiss it as nothing
Maybe my mind new something was going to happen
My body had no clue
I was walking along the lifeless rose bush
Looking down at the dead leaves all brown and decaying
I almost fell
As I caught my balance
I took another step
Then I almost fell again
I realized there was nothing in my way
Why did I lose my balance both times ?
I looked at the bottom of my left work shoe
There it was
A lost soul
I made a grave mistake
I am horrible in spelling
A grammar error
Darn that spell check
It's really not my fault
I wouldn't lead you to believe something different
There we have it
My lost sole
The rubber had come loose from the bottom of my work shoe
I still couldn't believe my eyes
Somebody didn't do their job correctly
I wonder how many lost soles are floating around out there ?
Just waiting to be discovered
Could you let me know if you see one ?
Please tell me how you handled it ?
My wife said that's the end of those shoes
Not so fast
I am going to try some amazing super glue
If that doesn't work
Out you go
