Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time

When I thought the world was all mine

So many opportunities in front of me

What would I grow up to be

A doctor, a lawyer, a farmer, a fast-food worker

Off to college I went to find my order

Enjoyed the time I spent at school

Often times getting drunker than a fool

I knew after a while that this was not for me

So I knew then what I would become

For my lifes outcome

The course that I chose as I grew older

Was for me to become a soldier

 

Waiting

underground-1715279_960_720

Upon a dream I wait

Voices in my head drive my doubt

Telling me it will never happen

Why do you believe you deserve this outcome

Trying to push them out

Anxiety takes hold

I try to stay bold

My heart says all will be as willed

Upon peace it shall be filled

Agonizing over the ticking of the clock

Pushing against a giant rock

Knowing that God is at work

Upon his path I shall wait

Not easy to stand still within the storm

Praying that word shall come down soon

Waiting like a cowboy for high noon

Together

Upon you I find my courage

To reach for a future with you

When I look into your eyes

I find a time ahead so bright

Journey’s ahead to see all we have talked about

To reach that moment trials will we face

Together we will make it through

From sea to shining sea, across the oceans we will go

Until such a day when eternity we shall reach

Hand in hand we shall go to that end

Till we walk the roads made of gold

Hand in Hand

affection-2178174_960_720

The future is an uncertain mystery

We want to be able to control every aspect

Thinking we know all that comes next

But one day we are here and the next we are not

So as our future together is full of fright

Wishing we will always walk in the light

I know that there will be days full of rain

As long as I’m with you I will not be strained

For my future is with you that is all I know

Wherever that journey takes us we will go

With God as our guide

And you by my side

Hand in hand we will go forth

Whether it by East, West, North or South

Future for Two

holding-hands-2180640_960_720

Dreaming of a future with you

A time when our days are made for us two

Travelling from place to place

Discovering the beauty of God’s great creation

From the Beaches of the coasts

To the Mountains along the divide

And all the areas in-between

Together we will travel from one destination to the next

Visiting our children and their families

Growing older into our twilight we will be

Experiencing all the sights of created by God’s mighty hand

A future meant just for us two

In Your Eyes


In your eyes

Reflecting back at me 

I see myself mirrored back

My future with you teasing 

Seeing what could be

My past with You tormenting 

Seeing what could have been 

What I comprehend is a glance

A sight of a love that we pray will grow

In your eyes I see a hope for our future 

A sadness of our past

The love we share in the now. 

Fog

As I walk all around me is nothing

My path covered in a dense fog

Unable to see what is ahead of me

Behind me lost in a cloud that covers me all around

Unable to see the pitfalls and dangers ahead

To scared to turn back at what I’ve passed by

Do I continue on through this unseeing fog

Or should I just lay down and die lost in this maze

If I continue on is there sunshine ahead or a continuous unknown

My head tells me there is no hope of a clear path ahead

My heart says to continue on and have faith that the fog will break and sunshine will light my way

Weary am I but onward I will continue into that unknown

Hoping that somewhere there is open skies ahead

Never Going Back

heart-583895_960_720Before I would sit around and kill my mind in worthless pursuits

Before I would sit in silence and let the quiet of life engulf me

Before I would let you wonder how I really felt

Before I would push you away and never get close

Before I let the wall grow high

Before I let your heart escape and go astray

I tell you now and forever

I am never going back

Today I find my mind looking to explore

Today I sometimes never shut up

Today I tell you everyday what you mean to me

Today I pull you closer when you want to push me away

Today I build a path for us to walk on together

Today I pursue your heart and seek to win it back in the worst way

Today I tell you I am a new man

My heart of stone has gone away

A heart of flesh is what is left

My love for you is here to stay

 

Forgiveness

Today has been a tough day I will not lie

I look at myself and wonder why

Holding back my emotions and feelings for so long

Disaster strikes and the dam pieces fly

A flood of emotions come pouring out

Unsure on how to control them without getting hurt

Today was a tough day I will not lie

However I look to God and see what he did for us

Forgiven even my broken soul

Unsure on how this could be

But unconditional He loves me

I trust in you to bring me through

A path ahead not easy or wide

Forgiveness I give as he has given unto me

Moving ahead is what I seek

A future ahead a past behind

Today was a tough day I will not lie

But God still loves me and I trust in Him.
