.I shoveled through some knee high stuff
I've paddled without an oar
I've sailed the seas both smooth and rough
and somehow reached the shore

A Woman s Serenade

A Womans Serenade

I've sat beside the railroad tracks
and watched my life rush by
I've walked a long and lonely road
I've sat alone and cried
I've built a mountain from a hill
symbolic though it was
I've seen the destined eagle pass
in flight the way it does
I 've more than once
been loved and lost
I've been abandoned
raped and tossed
I've tried to climb
some hills too steep
I've slid back down
and there I'd weep
I've sewn together happiness
when family leaned upon it
I've raised and ruled a multitude
caressed them in a sonnet
I've spackled closed the cracks of life
to try to keep them safe from harm
I've led them and I've walked behind
sometimes it's been a funny farm
I shoveled through some knee high stuff
I've paddled without an oar
I've sailed the seas both smooth and rough
and somehow reached the shore
I've worn a shell to keep me safe
Then allowed that shell to shatter
I've worn the cloak of patience
and I've felt my patience splatter
I've kneeled and prayed beside a grave
of loved ones I have lost
I've raised my voice in godly praise
yet questioned him the cost
there is no perfection here
of flesh and bone I'm made
I am just a woman child
whose lived a serenade
