Treasure Island

My Honey


The Lord was Honeys' shepherd
As he is for one and all
She always tried to do whats right
In the answer to his call

There were twists and turns in her daaily life
As were many hills to climb
There were roadblocks and rough passagess
All were best be left behind

A life without you honey
Would have been a very different place
One less to call our valued friend
Not letting up the chase

For Honey chose the straight and narrow
Leading others along the way
And that has changed so many lives
Along her traveled ways

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
