I’ve danced upon a rolling sea and shed my skin like a snake,
Searched for things that never were real and tried to save a day.
Walked with heroes but never was one, however, I still felt proud,
To know the Lord, and that He still cares, although I don’t wear a crown.
I’ve whispered sweet songs to those I’d loved and danced in the rain at night,
Walked with the dead on their final day and watched them drift off into flight.
I question the wise in search of wisdom and learned a thing or two,
Yet stumbled upon the answers I’d sought, when once in a child’s small room.
I fought to find the meaning of love and fell from the edge of the roof,
Only to land on my feet once again in search of my personal truth.
I’ve traveled the world in search of a queen to find one and settle down,
To dine on grits and golden prawn where gulls they circled around.
I’ve wished on a star and gambled my gains to see that neither did pay,
But learned in prayer that hope is a gift that God grants to those in pain.
I’ve asked for and gotten, prayed for, and lost, assumed and at times was dismayed,
To find in this world nothing is known, and what we receive is through grace!
