he's a young child again
stained his knees on the grass he's within
carried up in concern
a man before his time what's to learn
it's a cold place for a fire
the bright keep getting brighter he don't care
placed his trust in nothing common
perhaps it will get him lucky wish i might
takes a warm look at the choices
the laughter heard from the voices will it end

all the while there's a symphony on the music box
as i sit behind the keys of my player piano i cry
and in a while faced a man behind a child
and suddenly it hit me your with me
i care

a long way from his home
took the choice to make it his own not alone
a want to fill up his need
a bleak break on the day what to say
it's a cup full of his tasting
bruised his heel just for asking what a tale
if a lie made him regretful
than a true word more insightful just to be
he's a young child again
found a way of letting it in wait and see

    Author's comments (aaron wiederspahn, I believe): Isaiah 40:31-- Our Lord is there calling us and patiently waiting while we do our thing. The Lord tarries because He desires that not one of His children should perish. Now if we would be patient and wait on Him we would stand amazed at what things He would do. The Lord's timing is perfect.
