I am diligent, and not all seem to notice.
I have never failed you, generations passed;
I will never fail you, your children will testify.
I am the surest thing you’ll ever know
even when stocks fall and your love fade,
I will smile upon you, bloom flowers for you,
anything to lift up your mood.
I know you like me best when I am lowly,
and like cupid, making your love for me swell,
you sometimes awe at me, I blush at that,
even more when your hand links with another.
Outshining others is not my thing;
I will always let others become the news
though I am never really backstage;
you just need to be high enough to see.
Like all things in this world I am not perfect-
some times I’ll be merciless,
but once in a while you’ll miss me too.
But one other is true as I am,
The God who made me and called me.
But one question I must ask,
how would your life be without me?
