Tomorrows child


I’m a man of stone
in a world of bad

tasted smiles so sweet
wasted good I’ve had

Lord I’m feeling old
help me walk the miles

help me pave the road I know
must raise tomorrows child

I was just a boy
learning how to fly

only yesterday
my cowboy ways could never die

now I’m letting go
help me walk the miles

to replace the seeds I’ve sewn
and raise tomorrows child

Lord I’ve thrown the rocks
and I’ve stole the signs

in this great big world
I’ve spent my days just doin’ time

but before I go
help me right the wrong

help me fix the holes I know
I’ve made that don’t belong

It’s a sin upon
such a weary mind

many different roads
I’ve lost my way and left em’ blind

but before I go
let me leave a smile

help me pave the road I know
must save tomorrows child

Lord I know the seeds I’ve sewn
must raise tomorrows child  ©

    girl, you don’t have any limits. i keep waiting for the day you don’t have any great poetry left, but i know that day will never come. i always love reading your stuff because it is always so good!

    • GOD bless you for saying this. My fellow poet RV reblogged it and I’m so honored for the privilege to be featured on such a talented artists site 😉 thank you for your kind words!

        yea, i noticed right after i posted the comment that it was yours. my apologies, but it was a fantastic piece.

      • God bless you… to be accused of being as bright and beautiful as a girl like RV… I considered it a high compliment. Isn’t she lovely? Seasons greetings my friend and thank you.😇
