Time.....

It must be years by now,
Since I last saw you.

Your old room still as you left it,
Your smell lingers in the air,

Or maybe it's just me,
Just how much I miss your laugh,
What I'd do to hold you one last time.

But I wouldn't want to have it any other way,
Life has it's ups and downs
And I know I can't rewrite what's done.

I love the way I had a chance to love you everyday,
But time changes fast
And I can only be grateful for what I had.

Do you still look the same?
Do you still think of me that way?
Is there a smile that plays across your lips,
When someone says my name?
Am I still that special girl?
The one that got away?
Are we still friends?

But I wouldn't want to have it any other way,
Life has it's ups and downs
And I know I can't rewrite what's done.

I love the way I had a chance to love you everyday,
But time changes fast
And I can only be grateful for what I had.

Sad, what's that?

Sad, sad, sad and mad,
That's what I was,
That's where I have been,
That's where happy memories go to die.

So, what exactly, is sad?
Sad, what's that?

No, I'm not sad, though I've been there before.
Down that long winding, windy boring cold corridor.

Sadness, it sucks you away,
Pulls you under and lets you believe,
Sad is all you need.

Sad? No.
More relived, why?
Because the future lies here,
With every step I take away from there,
With every step I take towards where I am meant to be.

Sad? Me?
Why should I be?
Life is just beginning,
The beauty of it all waiting,
For me, for you,
In this separation,
Life is waiting to be lived.

Sad, what's that?
I don't know it now,
And neither should you.
Sad isn't where you or I should be.

HE IS REAL

I had a pain so deep,
I didn't know where to turn,
I fought it in my sleep and faced it in my days.

I let it wear me down, force me to weep,
I allowed it to make me less than I had become.

One night in its heat, as I cried so deep,
I asked Jesus to give me peace.
I wanted to feel His peace, His love,
His presence.

Unexpectedly, in that moment of what seemed like defeat,
A warmth so peaceful, so great, so vast, covered me from within.

My tears dried, my heart beat calmed and I smiled,
If ever I doubted, I knew at that moment,
My Jesus is alive and yes,
HE IS REAL.

Life as I know it (Here I Stand)

So far down this road, one thing is clear,
I''ll always end up, somewhere, sometime
Along this journey, alone.

With those that I love, no where around to help,
No shoulders to lean on, no familiar voice to cheer me on.
Just me, my shoulders, my voice, my faith.

I have learnt that I have to fight,
In this life to get along,
To achieve, to gain, to grow, to succeed.

I would like to have another fighter,
By my side, to know I'm a half of one, fighting together,
In this life.

But seeing as how, in this life,
No two goals are ever alike,
I notice, this life, doesn't ask me to star in a tag team,
Nor a group, nor a family.

This life, asks me to face it as one,
Take down all my fears,
Stare my troubles in their fearless eyes,
Find my strength within my weaknesses
And share the best of who I am everyday.

So here I stand,
Alone once again,
But this time, alone, has never felt so strong.
