Come in old friend, and rest here a while
For you look tired and torn so relax and cherish this time 
For your journey must have been a long one, after all those miles
Through the valleys, and countless mountains, you had to climb

I pray your trip was a good one, and each step you found worth while                    For you were guided by the love of God and watched over every mile                     Folks here have missed you and your stories, they seem to make them smile Your friendship and kindness are one that's a blessing, like the love of a child

Put your feet up by the fire, let the heat warm your bones
Let the crackling sooth your spirit and the flames, calm your soul
For your travels have ended and you are now safe, and no longer alone
Let the angels hold you tightly and shelter you from the nighttime cold  

For today has ended and tomorrow will be here so very soon
A new sun will shine, while the northwest winds blow on through
For now, dream your dreams safe and warm from the stormy sky
For it's time to say goodnight to your troubles and for today, say goodbye

Come on in old friend and rest here a while
For your journey must have been long one, after all those miles
Put your feet up by the fire, let the heat warm your bones
For your travels have ended and you are now safe, so let me say, welcome home

PRAYER OF A FOOL
© June 2021 Written By, The Depressed Poet, Doc Dalton

I lowered my head in shame, when I saw you late last night
Couldn't't think of what to do or even more, just what to say
Didn't know if you would walk my way and if all would be all right
For a moment I thought God might help me, if I quietly stopped and Prayed

Should I ask for your forgiveness, or simply smile and say hello
Would it really be that easy, the sad part was, I didn't know
Maybe I would pay the price, for being such a fool
A punishment I so deserved, how could I"ve been so cruel

Then you looked my way and your eyes made me die inside
They seemed to lite every star that shined, within my sky
A sky that let me see so deep within your soul as for far as I could see
Followed by regret deep within my heart, that brought tears to my eyes

Maybe I should walk away and leave like a scared little child
Never truly knowing how the acts of a senseless man, could be so cruel
For now, I am so uncertain of what our meeting could bring
Sadness, pain even more uncertainty, that now ends with a Prayer of a fool
