Purple Flower

I liked a little gamble

A bet I loved to place

A rush of the adrenalin

I loved to watch the race


I studied all the form

Running heavy on the course

Sometimes picking colours

An eye on my favourite horse


For me it wasn’t gambling

It was a treasured way of life

It took my mind so far away

From trouble and from strife


So now it’s time for resting

I’ve passed the winners line

Think of me, a winning ticket

And how I loved this life of mine.
