Something Borrowed

Dear God,

I ask you for just one thing it's kind of hard to say

I've wanted it forever but I've waited till today

You made it with your own hands before the break of day

You the masterful potter, it the flexible clay

You watched it's first steps upon your precious Earth

You knew what it would become before it's very birth

You held it steady upon it's thin rope of life

You guarded it with care, free from every strife

It turned from you but you never left it's side

It ignored your gifts but you remained the tender guide

It cried when it had fallen beyond earthly repair

Yet you were ready and waiting for it's long awaited prayer

You guided it back to your ever luminous light


Now always beside you, never in flight

You walked it down my rope just one time

It made me want to call it mine

But that's just it, though call me cursed

It was yours from the very first

So I'm here to ask for no small feat

If you're confused let me repeat:


I ask you for just one thing it's kind of hard to say


I've wanted her forever but I've waited till today


You made her with your own hands before the break of day


You the masterful potter, her the flexible clay


You watched her first steps upon your precious Earth


You knew what she would become before her very birth


You held her steady upon her thin rope of life


You guarded her with care, free from every strife


She turned from you but you never left her side


She ignored your gifts but you remained the tender guide


She cried when she had fallen beyond earthly repair


Yet you were ready and waiting for her long awaited prayer


You guided her back to your ever luminous light



Now always beside you, never in flight


You walked her down my rope just one time


You made me want to call her mine


But that's just it, though call me cursed


She was yours from the very first

So I ask you God to let me borrow

Not forever just till tomorrow

And when you decide tomorrow will end

Know that I will return her to you as an ever grateful friend

I promise that forever we will make you number one

I promise to protect her as you have always done

So I'll ask you every day

Until you call me to your heavenly way

I ask you sir, as you are her father

May I have the hand of your beloved daughter?
