Things I do and things I don’t,

are things I do for you.

Truths and Lies of this world

Make me often feel so blue.

But when I feel beaten hard

I raise my eyes and look at you.

That one casting, that one look

Gives me strength, whole life through

I remember years ago….

You held me gently by my hand

Made me stumble and walk by you.

Oh Truth! I walked since

She asked me to walk by you.

Oh paths of life trodden by me!

No matter how haunted were you.

Amidst the darkness when I fell

I stood faster because of you.

Life is a ship taken by storm

But I’ve been a skillful crew.

I know nothing, I know not

What life is, what it is not.
