    [/CENTER]I Have Lived And I Have Loved


    I the soul of old woman,
    I have lived and I have loved,
    Hear the heart as the sun beams
    Within the paradise of forgiven love.
    Wisdom sings and the drafts shall stings
    I the soul of Old woman shall be
    mother let not my thunder be your defeat.


    Let not the welter branch be his history of life.
    Feed it within the wisdom of great understanding.
    Nurture it well it shall grow.
    Let the sun shine upon its earth.
    Never over water the roots of its foundation.
    It shall welter and die, it may grow within the weeds.
    The beauty of its flower shall be no more.



    I have lived I have loved I have felt scars upon my back.
    I the woman of old souls embraced the love of
    my man. It is not the forsaken of the heart, but
    the treasures of memories that creates great love.

    It is not death but life that sustain the un forgotten pain.
    If the good times out weigh the bad, better half a loaf than
    known at all better to live than dye without love.

    I have lived and I have love, you can get more
    from honey than the bitter taste of vinegar
    that restrains the communication of love.
