Caught Up In The Moment



Caught Up In The Moment
By Donald James Kirby Von Koehler

i salute you for a battle well fought
with goals accomplished-more than you sought
now it is time-the statement must be made
for all to see that you have made the grade
justice has prevailed-now you have the crown
success is so elusive to those who bring you down
it's your dance-the song is yours to sing
it's winner take all-as you shoot for everything
caught up in the moment-victory in your stride
time is your companion and power on your side
caught up in the moment-it's a dream come true
yet, for the record-the rest is up to you
you've overcame the struggles-milestones passed
made up your mind-not to be outclassed
while others watch on-you're setting the pace
in an atmosphere of awe-we see the smile on your face
caught up in the moment-gaining the respect of all
you elect to rise to the occasion rather than to fall
caught up in the moment-worthy of your reward
the stage is yours-a singer never out of chord

I was born in Buried Washington in 1965 at Burien general the rest is a blur..........okay just kidding ]:P I have always loved music I played Strawberry Fields Forever on the Drums at my 2nd grade Talent show and took 2nd place at the age of 13 I started writing lyrics at a pace of 5 to 10 an hour sometimes 25 a day- at the age of 16 I learned by ear Piano still don't read music but I have over 60 made up songs on the keyboards.
