I Lay Down These Stones

I lay down these stones
And hope you will see
I do this for you
And what may one day be

That I am always there
And truly love you
Worrying about you
Is all that I do

These stones have meanings
This I did learn
When you turn one over
Progress is earned

One stone means faith
In what you can you do
Count on yourself
Make dreams come true

The next stone means hope
And all that I pray
Is the man you’ll become
With each passing day

Some stones cause pain
Since they show what you’ve done
Don’t run away
You’re never alone

But most of the stones
That I did lay
Are there for guidance
And light for the day

Light in the darkness
Is what I pray
I can give this to you
Don’t turn away

Accept what you’ve done
And change it from here
That’s how you grow
And then learn to care

To care about those
Who have been here for you
Waiting patiently
Is all that I do

    Sad but so tender. You express your thoughts with emotion and tenderness. I enjoyed reading.
