Ruby Red Lips

Ruby red lips

Took me there

Behind the barn door

Young and scared


In the hay bails

Flirting and such

I tried to stop him

When it got too much


With my puppy love

Up in the loft

Entered the pit bull

To my pink toy poodle, shy and soft


And the barn trespasser

Certainly didn’t like

That sweet little thang

Having a sharp bite


So he shoved her, kicked her

Threw her to the floor

Her emotions echoed in the rafters

But only silence, outside the barn door


So no one believed

That sweet little thang

Got pouty lips that day

Lips that sting


And I lived my whole life

Covering up my dog days of summer

With color to make luscious

The lips that were simply numb-er


And my one last chance to make things right

Was to lather on the Revive

Over ruby red lips

Just maybe, maybe I would survive


Ruby red lips--Pouty ones too

Stammering, flattering, speaking deceit over again

The hounds only got louder

The voices of finite men


But oh that God would speak

And open His lips for me

And show me secrets of Wisdom

That I might truly be free


And fill my mouth with laughing

That my lips might rejoice

Heaven’s Healer has spoken

Given me inner Peace, Joy


Something really did happen

On the inside of me

In that sacred space

Where no one can see


Healing

Healing, real and whole

I’ve been back to the loft

With my revived soul


And I no longer fear

The pit bulls that creep near

The Lord is my Shepherd

Healing is here.


My lips shall praise Thee

Where once there was only pout

Thus will I bless Thee

Praises, I shout
