It's True

I shall shake off the stench of death, oh, so stale and dull

I shall, I shall.

 

I will so engage in all that's good, in all that's just and real

I will, I will.

 

I do so cherish all;  and I do love you, see you, hear you.

I do, I do.

 

I shall shake off the stench of death,oh so stale and dull

I shall fight Him till my last breath before I join His thrall

I will engage in all that's good, in all that's just and real

And I will learn, like before, to trust again and I will heal.

I do so cherish all; and I do love you, see you, hear you.

and every day that passes by I hold on tight just for you.

I do.

I do.

It's true.

 

For you, whether I like it or I don't I'll have to last. 

And so I must go on, certain, brave and steadfast.

I must, I must. I must.

 

P.S. As modal verbs go I intentionally left out the "coulda, woulda, shouda's". I find them pointless. And I bet if I tried I might discover that I actually can live without you; but that I may not!

Thank you dear Fish! You are too kind! Paul The Apostle huh? You honor me. It was just a declaration of devotion, I'm no saint.
Thank you so much🎈

A strong declaration Mae. Made me straightway think of Paul The Apostle's words -
" From now on, brothers and sisters, if anything is excellent and if anything is admirable, focus your thoughts on these things: all that is true, all that is holy, all that is just, all that is pure, all that is lovely, and all that is worthy of praise."
Go well ><>
