The fool

“The fool”

I am the fool, who holds so fast, to dream a love forever lasts
And if a fool then I just need just one my soul mate seeking me. 
She’s too a fool to think I’m here, to seek despite the odds, her fear, that I a fool can never 
be, in this vast world of miseries.
She will not let me wander lost, she’s well beyond those counting cost, we’re born to heal 
each other’s pain, despite the journey beyond the strain. 
But though my faith my strength might fail love leads us on, we will prevail, 
to answer God’s most cherished call to know this love is worth it all
For God put you within my heart to seek your face to stand apart and know this love can 
only be if both convinced its destiny…

Lawrence Schrank
