GUESTS - GIFT - SHALLOW GRAVE


GUESTS

Feb 26, 2010 Diamond's 2nd birthday.


THANKS BE TO GOD

God’s
Greatest
Gift Granted,
Given Gladly,
Graciously Guarded.
Genuine Gratitude


THIS DAY

The day before tomorrow
The day he’ll meet his maker
Reflections of a sinner
Reflections of remorse

The gift of freedom, precious
That priceless treasure granted
To all men as a birthright
Now squandered without thought

The day after yesterday
The day of guilty verdict
Twenty four short months ago
Not twenty four long hours

If only he could return
If only… oh, if only
He could have spared a man’s life
He could have spared his own

This day, a day of hindsight
Today a day of regret
‘Forgive me for my weakness
Forgive my mortal sin’

He takes his tarnished treasure
He places it in a box
Buries his worthless freedom
In an unmarked, shallow grave
