Today’s a day for reveries
Of love and tears and memories
Of sadness and reproach, it seems
Of fear and of aborted dreams.
I’ve lived a life so full of pain
And will not pass this way again
I wait here in the silence of
My lonliness and derth of love.
Dear Lord, protect me from myself
And place me on the “keepsafe” shelf
I know Your heart’s with every child
In manner kind, loving and mild !
