Where is that guide who leads me 

Past all the stirring waters? 

Keeps me out of trouble, 

So I don’t stumble or falter.   

Sometimes he leaves me stranded 

When I need him the most. 

Then trouble comes along my way, 

I may be visited by a ghost.   

A ghost who leads me astray 

Into a swirling current 

That leads to murky waters. 

I long for some assurance   

From a higher power 

Upon whose strength I lean 

I try to quiet my mind 

So the ghost will soon leave.
