TAKE COURAGE

There are things in life that come and go

Like birds that stop and sing

Then rise up soon to take the air,

Leaving on the wing.

 

Take courage - now that's a sometime thing

That can come and just as quickly go,

Like the summer wind to warm the heart

Or chill it like the snow.

 

According to capricious circumstance

It makes its presence felt,

To shout defiance and wave the fist

Or like the snow - to melt.

 

Yes - courage can be a sometime guest

That holds our hand at times

But it can also bid farewell

When faced with the fear of crimes.

 

Make its acquaintance when you can

If it should pay a visit,

And if someone should say "that's brave"

Don't be waste time wondering "is it?".
