Poetic Verses

Until I Am Not

Until I am not,
I will always be
for the tarnished lock
the only golden key
to open doors that shut you out
from the other side
I am the one who's left;
the only one to guide

Until I am not,
I will always be
the vessel that will carry you
upon life's shinning sea
from where the waters pull you down
without a breath of air;
I am the hand that holds you up
away from the ocean's snare

Until I am not,
I will always be
the one without the time
for frivolity
I spend my days in worry
for things I can't provide
and then I pray to Him above
and hope He will abide

Until I am not,
I will always be
the lifeline for your spirit
until you are set free
from this mother's bond
of iron clad will
This is all I am;
all I am until
