Piercing stare through all the noise,
a heart for God established by tears.
Closing of the eyes to focus clearly,
do you see me or just what you want to.
Aging through what is given, lessons I’ve
learned, do not be afraid to embrace me tightly.
Grasping all words spoken aloud before me,
I choose to cherish all moments of time.
Years of pain, body hasn’t acted the same,
your love for me has always been near.
Mimicking the words of the song by lips,
I respect you Father no matter what happens.
Positioned forward to soak up everything,
my life is yours purchased by real suffering.
Let understanding be open to gain what matters
the most, you are worth waiting for through this life.
