By way of 'Thank you!' to Christina:
I'd like to tell a little story...
Apprehensions?... Don't you worry!
To its core I'll dash...
thus it's told like flash.
Sad I was.. and pain I felt,
"deuces" were the cards I held,
while commuting on my route;
Life's perspective? Simply "Shoot!"....
I tried for music change the air...
and Christina's "Stripped!" was there.
Disk inserted... I hit "Play!"...
my 'blues' did fade, it went away!
My grin returned from Nevermore;
then the CD dit hit on "Soar".
Her song, the words, mere revelation,
recreating my equation.
Her music voided pain and fear
and made me smile from ear to ear...
Christina, dear, I do owe thee
for your music's wizardry
did "Lift me up!"... and well it did!
If - any time - you're on the spit,
them going for your hide...
- be it day or be it night -
you needing help - just say the word...
forget the odds: You will be heard!!
