I See Spring!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I See Spring!

"With picture faded on the wall -

oh, who could understand it all?

 

For yesterday began the spring

when we could dance and we could sing.

 

But faded now, our lively songs

with grasses dead and flowers gone.

---

Today I stand somewhat dismayed.

and of tomorrow, am afraid.

 

My wrinkled face now bears a frown.

I find the whole world up-side-down.

 

From government to businesses -

the world is busy, all abuzz.

 

The love of money, Satan's hook.

What's with the envy?  Take a look!

 

In all the world, who understands?

Does love for money stain our hands?

---

Some day in Heaven, happily -

I'll sing God's praises out with glee!

 

Who cares of clothes or car I drive?

I am with Him and am alive!

 

Today, I see deception's sting -

but of tomorrow, I see spring!

 

With picture faded on the wall -

oh, who would understand it all?
