My Rebuilding

Caution everybody
I’m under re-construction
Or should I say
I’m being saved from destruction

It’s the same ole me
But some things I must change
There are some parts of me
That must be rearranged

Through the years some things
Have gotten out of focus
I know I need to fix them
Right now that is a must

I found some things to be
What they really weren’t
I must now pay attention
To make everything current

A couple of times my heart
Has been taken for a ride
As I traveled on the journey
I had no place to hide

I had already committed
After I said, the words I do
It just seemed from that point on
My happy days were few

So now I’m getting a retro fitting
I’m building up the walls
I want to be ready for anything
The next time I take a fall

The words I do will never
Be said in vain again
Because I know that I
Have been there and lost again

So I think I’ll try it
On my own for a while
I know I don’t need anyone
Just to wear a smile

Well I’m almost finished
With the re-construction job
To tell you the truth
It really wasn’t that hard

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
