if I ever, ever lose my way again

by denny bales

I use to think my life had no value,

All that I have learned and accomplished in music

Was of no use to anyone for anything.

My dreams were over and done,

My younger days of having fun

And riding that wave of success was finished.

I felt bankrupt, shipwrecked and done,

Then one day while in the hospital

I was paid a visit by 2 of my piano students

Toni and Selma Sacco.

I received this cross from Toni (5 yrs old),

And Selma(7 yrs old) who painted this picture just for me.

All at once I felt alive again,

I heard all the prayers said for me,

I felt the love sent to me,

I got all the phone calls meant for me,

It was from their gifts I suddenly realized

I was using the wrong tape measure, yard stick

To measure my self worth.

So I would like to thank each and every one of you

for giving me new life,

New love, and new dreams.

To know how much you are loved by others

Is quite amazing and incredible, as well as

Rejuvenating and euphoric, I truly feel blessed.

Life is sweet because of you all,

And I love you all so very much.

Oh, And if I ever, ever lose my way again -

Will someone please whack me up side of the head

And say “Snap out of it, you idiot”

Thanks to all of you,

I’m doing my music and living the dream – again!

Love denny
