We Remember The Darndest Things

Lifetime

by country ranch writer

Nature has a way of changing things so suddenly in our life
no matter how things were then we now find ourselves in a crisis
we always knew we weren't alone, God was near in our hour of strife
we never face the unknown alone he makes us look on the bright side

You begin to see we were put here on earth as a very special guest
we have seen nature awake in the mornings showing us her very best
so full of wildlife, many foraging, some so still, waiting for Gods next test
then as night begins to fall in the evening everything begins once again to rest

Like the rodeo, it is a rehearsal of the things yet to come, no guarantees
excitement, sadness, thrills, all rolled up into one, everyone comes here to see
we believe in our God and nod to the man to open the chute we give it our best
it isn't always the way we planned, but the bull has the last say how we end the day

People get up everyday living in the fast lane from morning till night never stopping
go to keep up with the life style they have always tried to keep up with on the street
they find one day it all isn't what it was cracked up to be when guns start popping
people getting killed right in front of them watching all their hopes and dreams flee
