Faith Is On My Side

"When the river was deep I didn't falter
When the mountain was high I still believed
When the valley was low it didn't stop me,
I knew you were waiting.
Faith, I knew you were waiting for me"

Like a warrior that fights, and wins the battle, I know the taste of victory.
Though I went through some nights consumed by the shadows,
I was crippled emotionally, somehow I made it through the heartache.
Yes I did, I escaped, I found my way out of the darkness.

Kept my faith!

To G., My Friend.

"You just call out my name,
And you know whereever I am
I'll come running, oh yes my friend,
To see you again.

Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there."

You've got a friend!

Dedicated to Black Berry

Standing in the shadows all alone, in God's hands, armed with a phone 
"Didn't I do you right, didn't I?
Didn't I do the best I could, didn't I?"
Sorrow and pain lingers in his voice tone

"Don't your conscience bother you?"
"How can you watch me cry after all I've done for you?"
"Gave you all the love I had, didn't I?"
"When you needed me I was there, now wasn't I?"

Standing in the shadows of misery near a subway entrance
Faithful friend, his cell phone in  hand, his only company
Standing in the shadows of love
Gettin' ready for his next question, to come.

"What did I do to cause all this grief?"
"Now what'd I say to make you want to leave?"

"Are you grateful? Are you happy within?"

One Day At A Time.

I'm only human, I'm just a woman. 
Help me believe in what I could be 
And all that I am. 
Show me the stairway, I have to climb. 
Lord for my sake, teach me to take 
One day at a time. 
One day at a time sweet Jesus 
That's all I'm asking from you. 
Just give me the strength 
To do everyday what I have to do. 
Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus 
And tomorrow may never be mine. 
Lord help me today, show me the way 
One day at a time.
