Life’s Whirlpool …
We are forever drowning
and trying to keep our heads up high,
life’s whirlpool –
just keeps pulling us down.
That gives us no reason to frown
and it certainly shouldn’t bring us down,
because we have what no one can take away –
our very hearts and souls.
Days like never-ending calendar pages,
fall like leaves in the autumn
and before we know it –
another season, another year is upon us.
In life’s whirlpool,
smiles and laughter twirl about
and we have to give much thought,
to how to pull ourselves out.
There is no doubt,
that life can throw us about
and at times it can be so hard,
just to take one more day.
Was it just yesterday
that life seemed so simple?
It was the little things that meant a lot
and it should always be like that.
Dreams are a great way,
to make it easier,
perhaps we’re spinning on carousel horses,
in wonderful shapes and colors.
Because carousel horses,
know their courses
and they can make it simpler –
perhaps we’ll grab onto that golden ring.
Somewhere along the way,
I just don’t know why,
I feel I lost the me –
that I once wanted to be.
took me far from where I once was
and a part of me still,
will always want to return.
I sometimes feel,
that my mind’s in a constant reel
and I wonder, oh do I ever wonder why,
it got so very hard to try living day after day.
Where is the answer,
to life’s desire,
Are we really masters
in this world of ours?
Could it be,
just like me,
that it would be so much simpler,
to let life’s whirlpool just float me away.
Then it becomes clear,
to hold onto all that is dear,
hold on to faith and belief
and let the Lord guide me.
I know that someday,
however long I might have to wait,
there will come a shining moment,
when my feet will take me to my heart’s desire.
So for now,
I’m content to twirl in life’s whirlpool,
until there will be that special day,
when it will all come together for me.
Then head held high,
with the love that fills my heart and soul,
life will seem peaceful once more –
because through it all I’ll have found my place in the sun.
