GIVEN ANOTHER LEASE ON LIFE
A gentle soul with a streaming heart has given me his wisdom.
Standing with a wounded soul approaching his humble friend
he came with a theory of repentance that only he could offer.
I therefore felt I was given another lease on life with a baptism.
His words flowed with such an honesty and compassion to amend
this wayward son’s last attempt with the devil; talking so much softer.
Touched so deeply he cried in silence with a gentleness to transcend
his disappointment into aspiring helping the victim from his abysm.
The necessity of the situation was to raise the patient with honor.
As the memory shines his sympathetic nature reminds us to lend
a gracious hand to a deserving lost urchin as he was tenderly forgiven.
His feelings have been awoken to admiration as he realizes the bother
was worth the pain sealing our brotherhood which will never end.
The patient’s sentiments have now returned with gratitude driven
by his mercy for the ill-guided mistakes being an inspiration. He hollers
out with joy for the pardon he has received taking wing to quickly ascend.
The reception from the caring soul has transformed his fate as is risen
from his doldrums to believe in his mentor’s art to save him like a scholar.
His enigmatic dilemma has been unraveled and the rascal didn’t pretend
to find his soul cleansed as he ventures with a confidence pulling up his collar.
Happiness pours from his persona because of the hand that rocked the cradle
bringing this lost child back into the arms of Moses instead of hell’s prison.
The skies are flooded with butterflies while the Moon smiles down to spend
a moment for thought and leisure as we sit lovingly at our God-given table.
The emotions are truly full of thankfulness staring into the looking glass and prism
to heal my despair and doubtfulness as I enlighten my mind to comprehend
the wonder of my companion’s concern for correctness like a prophet’s fable.
