Guidance From You Father
guidance from you father
is what i am seeking,
one blood from you father
is what we are living,
one heart from you father
is what you have given,
one love from you father
is why i am living,
the guidance from you i seek
to live at peace within, i seek
the pieces of life i gather and pick
to fill my one life basket with
and stay as you wish, o’ dear father...
listen to the cry of the son
the one gone too further than done
their pot still had to bubble and bubbled
to keep their journey to no trouble and humbled
yet gone to the struggle of pain and happiness....
as i live beyond today
let my life bleed on the walls
to carry my soul beyond the walls,
let my heart seek beyond the souls
to carry my heart across the falls,
let my eyes see beyond the tolls
to marry my goal beyond the odds,
let my eyes see beyond the holes
to journey my walk across the soles.....
i travel to a distance far near me
and travel to a distant distance each day to carry me,
let my travel be touched by yours as a blessing,
let my foot run to a distant source
of life from the day of birth without force,
guide to my hand as i write without pause
and face the earth for a cause,
to live beyond today, and close
the chapter of yester times all gone
to the gardens of life of our own.
