the year of lyrics: a poetry project

my search for inner-peace, one poem at a time

Day 157 – A Single Slip of Paper

Leave a comment

What if I could be the one?
To be honest beyond imagination
To magnify the changes that you’ve spun
To surrender all past temptation

To dream for all sincere redemption
To reveal a peaceful source
To unbind the fear of exemption
To allow the stream to take its course

To let shallow pools become deep
To light the wick for a candle’s flame
To sort out memories that you should keep
To leave behind regret and blame

To remind you of all your gifts
To encourage you to remain alert
Just finish your meal and I’ll tell you this:
I’ve been folded into your dessert
