The Spirit


There`s a spirit that keeps us all going,

And it`s not from a bottle or can.

It’s the second that marked our conception

Yes the Spirit that God gives to man.


From that first gasp of air that we breathe in

And we enter the world stark and cold.

We thrive and grow strong, or just tag along

Until we are withered and old.


Yes the Spirit that guides and protects us,

Every step of the journey we make,.

Through thick and through thin, it will never give in

Regardless the choices we take.


Yes the road may be rough to begin with,

We may even stumble and fall,

But please understand, every step has been planned

By the Spirit that lives in us all.


There`s never a time it will fail you,

Be proud,  be strong and be true.

For the Spirit is the sacred resemblance

Of the person you know best, and thats you.
