The Carpenter's Son
Where's that boy , the carpenter's son ?
From upland lands , at youthful fun ,
Abroad they settled , made his way ,
World take heed of his deeds this day .
Mountains climbed as new lands surveyed
Time needs passage for desire's parade .
How much hurt can the human take ?
To what stress presses lives to break?
Surrounded by faces lonely ,
In the end , memory only ,
Shaped by people , place , always time
Recalled are talks , song , even mime .
He looks beyond the maze and haze
Which blinds most people with a daze
To grab the reins and steer the course
By his lead he becomes the force .
Heard " Water, water everywhere
But not a drop to drink." Be fare,
Aldo has taken up that cause.
He's trekked around the World because
Through his Ministries of concern ,
His doggedness makes people learn
That they hold their key for success .
Within each , may their own Lord bless .
