    I found something the other day,
    quite unlike anything I've ever known.
    It was as though it was meant for me,
    but THAT...I was just not sure.
    I approached "it" with caution......... and dignity,
    because I did not know........
    what exactly "it" had in store for me.
    That i was just not sure.
    I cherished it however,
    as if "it" were" mine to keep.
    and was pleased that I found something,
    that was consistent with me.
    I began to realize,
    after thinkin' it over to myself.
    That this so-called "thing" I found,
    was really lost from within.
    I had searched so long,
    that I finally gave up.
    Which caused me to lose sight,
    of what "it" really was.
    That is untill the other day,
    It was right there before me.
    As if it were lookin' for "it's" owner,
    which happened to be ME.
    Now this thing I found,
    I hope I do not lose...........

    OH

    and just in case you were wondering
    this "thing" happens to be YOU!
