Buckle Up Baby

Somewhere deep inside our souls.
We know who sits at the controls.
And that from the very beginning.
With God we knew we would be winning.

So now we're left to let you go.
To be with him, with faith we know.
That you have done all that was needed.
There's no need for it to be repeated.

And now we're left to hope and pray.
That we'll see you again someday.
And with that faith deep in our souls.
We know who sits at the controls.


P.S. This is why I hate, yes, hate contests on poetrysoup. This contest is already closed and after I took the time to, and put the effort into writing one for it. Thanks alot. :/

oh my goodness, sweet Les, you did such a good job here and the contest closed on you?? The other day, I was number 35 in a contest so I quickly just submitted an almost empty page and hurridly typed up the poem in the box after I submitted to the contest. All to no avail. the judge N/A'd me anyway. Crap!

"Buckle Up Baby" :) This made me smile. You are right, "We know who sits at the controls" My heart rejoices in that fact. Even though you didn't get this in a Contest. Your words Shine. It has Winner written all over it. :) Brandy

You are very welcome. :) The title finds me, and then the words. Sometimes, it's the other way around. :)
