Give me my roses

While I’m still alive

Tell me I’m wonderful 

Whilst I still thrive

This day was never 

promised me

There was never 

a guarantee 

As I open my eyes

And see the skies

I seize the day 

And begin to improvise

Turning a new page

Of memos and plans

Savour every second spent

I don’t waver, I don’t relent

This day was never promised me

It came with no warranty 

Love trough? That’s aplenty

Bank balance? Kinda empty

But this doesn’t worry me 

I had no idea

I could not foresee 

That life was such a potpourri 

I’m ever so grateful 

I’m ever so thankful 

That He has extended 

My Warranty
