Get Rid Of The Advertisements

The Canvas of Life
clouds on easel

If I had the colors of the rainbow and a canvas to paint on.
I would paint the story of my life, before my time on Earth is gone.
I'd paint my trials and tribulations, all the things that I've been through.
And last but certainly not least I'd paint a picture of the love I have for you.

I'd paint my hopes and all my dreams on that canvas in the sky.
I'd paint those precious memories, before my last goodbye.
I'd paint a picture of the heavens, where someday I'll stand besides Gods throne.
I'd paint a picture of my family and of our happy home.

I'd paint a picture of my neighbors and of the friends that I have met.
A picture of my Savior, him I won't forget.
I'd paint a picture of the World striving to find peace.
I'd paint a picture of my prayer to God asking that hate racism and greed would one day cease.

But alas I'm not an artist, just a humble servant of the Lord.
Trying to be a better person is a goal I work toward.
I say my prayers and try to be the best that I can be.
I'm thankful for the blessings that God gives to me.

Someday when I'm older and my time on Earth is through.
And I look back on my life and all the things I tried to do.
I'll say goodbye to my family, to my friends and to my wife.
Then I'll add the final touches to the canvas of my life.
