Carried it For Me

by T Rock © 2022

Helpless as a stumbling newborn lamb
Fragile with no means to survive as I am
A burden too heavy for a babe so wee
Without my mother, who carried it for me

Lacking the life skills to understand
What it means to provide, to become a man
The weight of my future with no way to foresee
If not for my father, who carried it for me

No matter the challenge faced each day
Lessening the load, whatever came my way
She never wavers, stands strong as an oak tree
The love of my wife, who carried it for me

Sins like stones, hauling each one on my back
Heavy, they bruise the soul and turn it black
Never to be seen as righteous, never would I be free
Save for the cross and my Savior, who carried it for me
