Because of This

by Patty Larkin

Because of This
I am tearful and grateful
Heart full and thankful for this

Because of this
I could Tell you an earful
And fill up your plate full of bliss

Because of This
I can See with my eyes wide
I’m not going to hide what I missed

Because of This
I would lay down my own life
Without asking why or what it is

Because of This
I’ve got stories to tell
All those fairy tales pale
Next to all that I feel

Because of This
Oh, I’m doing quite well
While all those Grimm Brothers fail

Because of This
I am tearful and grateful
heart full and thankful and blessed

Because of This
I could tell you an earful
'Till I tell you I'm soul full
How we're all only here for a kiss
Yeah, we're all only here Because of This
