IN THE COURSE OF A LIFETIME
Born we are, each of us with a purpose unless altered,
Nothing stops what we do depending on anything in our way.
We see so much with these eyes of mystery given from the master,
What about those without sight, is there a gift that comes from here,
Nothing taken for granted when you never saw what you are missing,
You now see with your heart and mind, this is what challenges your time,
We travel a thousand roads trying to choose the best way to go, we don’t know.
Decisions of intelligence, luck along the way, a prayer of hope and we may be okay,
In the course of a lifetime, we pass each other by, shake hands, laugh, and say goodbye.
