The Gift

Seems So Long Ago That Dark Day & Time When I Heard the News

Many “How Could It Be's” 1000's of “Why Me” “Buckets of Tears”

Soon Though, The Sun Rose I Felt Comfort I Did Not Feel Alone

The “GIFT” Arrived No Bow No Shiny Paper

It Is Supernatural It Is Privileged It Is A Talk Special To BOTH

Just A Promise The Walk will Not Be Alone FOR I Will Be There ALL the Time
