Let Me Not Lose It ©

Andrea R M Fletcher
NY, USA
2003

Let me gain wisdom--
And I don't want to lose it
Let me stand strong, tall and wise
Let me not be a broken arrow,
A broken sword,
A broken dagger,
Let me not wallow in despair
Let me not lose it.

The strongest part of my heart
The strongest part of my will

Let me not be a weakened soul,
Left to whimper--
To shed deep tears down yonder stream

Let me not fall, and lay down and weep
Let me gain wisdom
Let me not lose it.

Let me overcome obstacles
Let me rise up to see the dawn of a new day
Let me not sleep
Let me shine among the great
And let me be wise always
Let me not lose it.
