Forever Loved

You could never be mad at me
Wise old man whom my heart could see
You were there when I needed you
Just a young child so full of life
Causing many an adult strife
If I lied you could see right through 
You could never be mad at me
Wise old man whom my heart could see 

Because of you I changed my ways
Have respect till my dying days
You were there when I needed you
If I lied you could see right through
You could never be mad at me
Wise old man whom my heart could see

Everybody needs a wise old man at different points in time. However, it is how we listen and how we react to the wise old man's advice, or correction. Interesting form is Sonnetina Rispetto. I googled it and discovered it was produced by Soup's own Dorian Petersen Potter. WoW!
