A Step Behind

Always a step behind
Never a step ahead
Late to every party
Feet made of lead

Always a dollar short
Always a day late
Always catching up
Always told to wait

Never fully recovered
Never moving on
Never quite on track
Never getting along

But a day is coming
And has now come
When we who lag behind
Find that we didn't miss a thing
And as we round that corner
We lift our voice and sing

"Feet of lead
Now made light
Skip from earth
And take to flight

And meet the One
Up in the air
Who made everything
Everywhere"
