Have I Forgotten?


Have I forgotten all the great things that have been?
Why is there no smile on my face?
Why is there no rejoicing in my bones?
Why have I no pep in my step?
Have I forgotten?

Have I forgotten?
The beautiful blue sky on a comfortable cool day?
Have I forgotten?
The satisfaction of eating a full meal with crystal clear clean cold water?
Have I forgotten?

Have I forgotten all the great things that have been? Yes I have.
Why is there no smile on my face? I'm resisting the unknown.
Why is there no rejoicing in my bones? My reluctance to take a risk.
Why have I no pep in my step? Wondering if my steps are on the right path.

I have forgotten!

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
