Dont Send Me On A Stray

Moved by your tears
Even though you did not have to show your fears
I keep having this thought
Your honesty to me,you have brought
What if you did not stay?
Please don`t send me on a stray

Struggle through lifes`sometimes unbareable task
Its written in letters of gold
Keeper of the faith,you do not need to ask
Those who act evil,shall exit in evil ways
Legacy of the word,spoken from wise mind
You were brought into this world like a peaceful weapons system
With you I will never walk blind

What if it was all for nothing?

    Alone tomorrow, but still alive. It's how so many of us must survive. Just what did cause the isolation. That my friend, is the eternal question.

    Enjoyed your write and I think we all have doubts at one point or another. Then it is only for a moment and then the doubt is gone. We all question based on what is happening around us. Keep the faith. love phyl

    You really had me convinced of you sincere devotion...then you threw the question in at the end making me feel like you are completely human again! Doubt surrounds me at times too...thank goodness I have learned NOT to live based on how I feel all the time..I would be in a hurt of trouble..Like the keeper of the faith ..u do not need to ask...Gwendolen
