27 November 2003


I feel the soft velvet cloth on my face
It is life's flowing gown
Riding on the vessel called time
A smile erases my frown

I look up and feel the sun's glowing ray
The heat, melting my heart
Emotions break free and dance
Now my life begins to start

Rejoice I hear voices shout
Until now, you're still a gift
I struggle to find the sound
My arms to heavy to lift

But I remember life's velvet gown
How it turned my smile from a frown
And then I feel relieved
That I have truly lived.
