~ For My Girlfriend
How is it, as I awake at the break of
The sun will rise to shine for me,
How shall my heart be filled with laughter
So I can joyful be.
How can I be splashed with refreshing water
Inspired to find my way,
Where is that elusive strength to rise
To start a brand new day.
How could my eyes perceive heavenly wonder
For joy to release inside,
To lead my heart to freely dance
So in gentle peace I glide.
How am I able to let go my grasp
Of all that I hold fast,
But still feel snuggled safe within the pain
Until the very last.
How will I be guided in each step I take
Unshackled from deep despair,
Where is my hope strong and sure
To take my constant care.
How will my hungry soul be fed
And nourished in abiding love,
What draws my spirit to soar
Up to the heights above.
Thank you for being such an angel
to comfort and to pray
So that in my darkest night,
I will know to cry out to my Lord Jesus
Oh, the deepest peace...
When I can see His light.
