Ranch Poem – “Back to Serve”

10/17/2012

“Back to Serve”

Took the high road, always knew I’d be rewarded
Returning to a life fast-forwarded
Watch me go, better than before
I’ll shatter that steel ceiling, open that glass door
Take me in again, I’m as I once was, I’m all new
Show me your loving and I’ll show you some truth

Maybe it was a long dream or it was a nightmare
More like a chance to feel something rare
Stuck in a detached dimension
Where space is light and time weighs a ton
Wake up each morning; know I may not see the evening
But that won’t change these words that I’m singing

Stuck round here long enough, tomorrow may be returned
I’ll watch for traps n’ tricks, I won’t get burned
Just stick up for me, when some push me around
Destiny is tangled tight, it must be unwound
Superbowls, premieres, birthdays, deaths, election seasons
Profound some how, I’ve found, there must be a reason

I’ll go to church on Sunday; take it just that one day
Got lots to tell the people, not sure what I’ll say
Wanna catch that break I deserve
One cowboy exile, back to serve
You just wait outside with a Silver Harp and a smile
and I’ll play a tune and it will have all been worthwhile
