Today I pray
Oh Lord do not let me stray
Do I still need to pay
Another day down with no play
You give me your say

Acrostic Rhyme
Love or Lust
Love you everyday
Oliver I want kisses more than I can say
Violet please stay
Everyday we can play
Light from your smile
Us aginst them down the aisle
Stay for a while
Two of us can go a mile
