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.
