Should my heart today stay tucked away deeply
Hidden within the loneliness which daily comes
Shall It languish in a place once seemingly lost
While praying for the true love of a special One

Shall I try to escape from this infernal place
Where broken hearts and spirits may finally come
Or will I reach out seizing the new light of day
Realizing in my life a true happiness I have won

Shall I release myself from the embrace of sadness
Or should my heart be filled with such daily dismay
Will I continue to take steps back and not forward
Without hope of escaping the world’s ugliness one day

For this life surely has much more to give me
If I no longer dwell on the old hurts and pains
For living in this self-made cell of destruction
Will one day surely drive me completely insane

I will embrace closely the new love His spirit brings
Having faith the Lord will bring to me new beginnings
Chasing all of the demons away from my life for real
As I choose the less followed path leading to heaven

One is meant to love and praise the Lord each day
Sharing His beautiful gifts to others in many ways
Embracing His Spirits grace and His endless peace
Receiving His precious life-light which now stays.

(November 1976)

John 1:16
From his abundance we have all received one gracious
blessing after another.

Ephesians 2: 8-9
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith
and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God
not by works, so that no one can boast.
