Just a Man
Regret on the Back of a Lincoln
I have a place I go to dream
I have my friends to check me
I have countless secrets to keep
They crowd the space around me
I have the taste for wanting
Engraved memories hard earned
Chapters of feats to fill the pages
And lessons left to learn
My path is lit, my hands are washed
Tho stained from tears you shed
Know you have been freed
from guilt and wrong.
If "no" is he worst I've said.
If I'm to gain but not destroy
Luxuries and ties I'll have to lose
Dreams of paradise once more foiled
But, I can say I'd found you.
You have your ties binding whims
A strength you must not prove
You reflect out beauty from within
Your nature betrays your youth
When thoughts are clear from shrouding
Words are meant to follow suit
If you write then I will answer
As if time evades your truths
I may not exist to dawn that crown
To boast and brag on my own muse
My name may escape you in days to come
But, by God,
I can say I'd found you.
Just a Man
