Open Arms

When the gate opens
Standing there I will be
Arms wide open
Waiting, longing for your arms
To capture me
How far away
That day does seem
When you will hold me once again
Then carry me into a deeper realm
Dreams for now
Dreams and memories
Oh for that day is coming
Freedom made a reality

Where do you go?

Where do you go
when you’re tired from fighting?
Where do you run
When the sun is hiding?
You can’t see the light
The starts won’t even face this night
Surrounded by darkness
cold and alone

Where do you go?

You tried to do the right thing
You tried to make it on your own
You gave it all to let another sing
You lost it all and now you’re numb
Where do you go from here?

Is it time to admit defeat?
Is it time for you to retreat?

Where do you go from here?

This road

You tell me this life is too hard
You say that the road is much too long
You ask me for my advice on your plan
If you really want to hear,
I think you’ve got it all wrong

How do you leave?
How do you walk away?
How do you ignore it when
Your heart is begging you to stay?

How do you decide
That a human isn’t worth your time?
Simply based upon the opinions
That he committed some sort of crime

I have an opinion of my own
I’d like to share
If you were in his shoes
Would this seem fair?

If you were all alone
Doing time on your own
Surrounded by a million different moods
Would it be fair for him to forget –
all about you?

By all means, if he’s harmed you
Threatened you in some way
Then do what you have to do
To make certain that you are safe

But when someone you love
Asks for another try
Where do you get the right
To assume he’s telling all lies?

But what if he is true?
Looking back
You walked away from the only true love
You ever knew

I am happy in my decisions
To stand by the one I love
Hearts are being mended
Our strength comes from above

But if you choose to walk away
That decision is all on you
To be miserable and alone
Just as the inmate you left behind
Wishing you’d never gone

Begin Again

Give me the strength to love
No boundaries in our way
Take from me this anger
Remove from me this hate

Give me power over darkness
Light to shine on fear
Angels for this journey
While he is there and I am here

Grant us second chances
Or maybe this is third now?
Deliver us from evil
Graciously, we bow

Deliver us from evil
Free us from life as slaves
Restore to us a new love
Betrayal to the graves

By Your mighty power
Let all the healing rain
Fall upon my Love and I
Give us the strength to begin again

Fight to Escape

A fresh morning
Carried on the tail
of a Winter rain
Billowing clouds fight to escape the grey

For a moment,
Freedom is accomplished
The sky breaks through
Gallantly arrayed in brilliant blues

But then
From nowhere
Engulfed again
Swarming in darkness
As if drowning in sin
