Sometimes things happen that upset us. We have to feel what we feel, take the time to heal, remember what is real, and keep moving forward ...
I kiss my wife and ponder deep
I wonder why, and that's OK
Answers tomorrow are questions today
Then I kneel and start to pray
Ask the Lord to have His way
Stay focused on a future day
Hope to keep all harm at bay
So my baby girl can play
Jump on me, yell "Daddy, yay!"
Master piano, dance ballet
Tell her about our wedding day
How to wait for her fiance'
Relationships begin with "hey"
Then take their course - la vie c'est
Do her work for more than pay
Know when to go, and when to stay
Correct her course if she should stray
See that this world is still cray cray
The brave are scared to disobey
But sometimes do it anyway
The fools rush in, the wise survey
Think twice, act once - avoid the fray
Accountable talk never starts with "they"
Power is more than being able to sway
Then I reach "amen" and rise again
Ready to embark, engage and win
Eyes wide shut, but with open heart
The game ain't fair, so play it smart
The road ahead is still paved with LIFE
She can change the world if I maintain
Stay on my grind, and in my lane
