Spirit Alert

          My spirit has been missing for days,
          The special one that was Heaven sent;
          It's just not like it to wander off,
          Anyone know where my spirit went?

          It has been with me for so long,
          Most of my life or so it seems;
          Why would it simply go away,
          And I wonder what this could mean?

          Lord, did You take my spirit home?
          No, You wouldn't ever do that;
          It slipped away all by itself,
          God could You lead my spirit back?

          So friends, if you see my spirit,
          Tell it I'm looking high and low;
          Without it the trails will be rough,
          And I don't know which way to go.

          Spirits are a sensitive breed,
          While living in one's mind and soul;
          But when they are ripped from your heart,
          Days are dark and the nights so cold.

          Without spirit all can be lost,
          The future's as dark as the night;
          Lord, let Your spirit live in me,
          Then I know life will be alright.
