Start Again (Waster’s Lament)

 

Start again (Waster’s Lament)

 

If only I could start again

and emerge once more

into the cold April dawn

with a cry and a yawn.

Tiny fingers clutching at life

untested feet kicking

at the freedom of release.

If only I could start again.

 

If only I could start again

and reshape the child

into a brighter, better boy

with a heart full of joy.

Open arms embracing the world

innocent eyes staring

at the wonder of it all.

If only could start again.

 

If only I could start again

and remake the man

into a good honest soul

with a dream and a goal.

Tireless feet striding out

rejoicing voice singing

at the beauty of his days.

If only I could start again.

 

If only I could start again

and reclaim this wasted life.
