A Beautiful Person Unshackled By Care


Perhaps i enjoyed my few seconds of fame
When the beautiful lady she called me by name
The warmth of her greeting with me it did stay
And she surely did help for to brighten my day
Her best days behind her though 'twould be fair to say
That she looked quite lovely in her charming way
A beautiful person unshackled by care
Her great gift of happiness with others she does share
I felt a bit down in a self pitying mood
And about my small worries in silence did brood
But she cheered me up with her cheerful hello
From people like her joy and happiness grow
Perhaps in her sixties yet unsullied by time
And to her i do dedicate this simple rhyme.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
