“I’ve Lost It”

It seems I no longer have the passion
For my friends I know in need
Yes I’ve now something of my own
That has come to intercede.
 
I hope they will forgive me
For it’s  not that I don’t care
No it’s just there are sometimes in life
Feelings are hard to share.
 
Now when again I’m able
I’m sure I will return
Yet this has taught me how in life
Each day we live and learn.
 
Yes I never thought that in my time
This would ever happen to me
Still once that I had cleared my eyes
It wasn’t hard to see.
 
The Good Lord let me ride along
For years at a good pace
Then he took my Saddle and my Spurs
So I can no longer race.
 
Well I’ve been Blessed throughout the years
And have no right to complain
Yet I am human so leave no doubt
With me some still remain!
