    a moment

    that's all i ask
    that i might be able to smell the fragrance
    of honey suckles and roses
    ...appreciate the smile of a child
    playing hopscotch
    on a nice, sunshiny day

    the way the world is today
    brings to mind
    sodom and ghomorrah
    not the things you would want to find
    in the hearts and minds
    of your children

    so,
    give me this moment
    that i might give thanks for
    all the wonderful things you've done for me
    ...reflect on
    your love and generosity
    never asking for nothing
    in return for your compassion

    "GIVE US THIS DAY"
    yes, YOU did
    and i'm humbled
    as i mumble these words
    ...not asking for more than you've already done
    in allowing me to have fun
    as i walk this earthen dirt
    from which i come

    I DO THANK YOUR SON

    but,
    for all those who're having so much fun
    they can't recognize where true happiness comes from
    i ask that you forgive them
    for they know not what they do
    yes, it's true
    that you've told them what must be
    but being free to choose
    is a problem...for some
    YOU see.

    as long as there is pleasure in the doing
    and doing doesn't kill
    aaahhhh,
    that's the deception Eve lived
    giving way to the thrill
    not realizing how much she had to give

    one moment.

    that's all i ask.
