List One

Thousands of things slander and deface my time Scarcely find that while wandering I found time to rhyme On list one I began a poem, found it carried on But yet stymied again, left it alone till twas better known Took out list two and thought again of you Looked that list up and down to be sure and true List one was done, but I left it askew a myriad and Started list three today, and it ended with a period Lord above gave me strength to write list four Time took away my breath, collapsing to the floor I grabbed list one from my pocket to read Your name was there, and that's all I need To get me up and moving, carry me on down the road List one, heavenly father, you and me our burdens unload
