Dear God...

Dear God…

Today is the the day…

I’ve thought back on all the years of joy and fun
Days spent with family on the beach in the sun
The days when the rain just didn’t stop
Where we stood with buckets, towels and a mop
The days we worked for our living
But then used it all for plain loving and giving
And the moments we were squashed in that small church pew
To the times when it ended up with just me and You

I remembered the days i spent with my girls
Running in the meadows with our hops and twirls
Doing our make-up and makeing our hair
As we set off to find some boys at the country fair
The days we would just dance and sing
or just chatted about our summer fling.
The days we were just there to wipe the tears
Or hold each others hand as they faced their fears

I think back on those times in school
when all us girls thought we were just so cool
with our designer fluffy pendant pens
And the smokes shared with rebel friends.
The late nights doing awful work
but then came weekend and we would shirk
Just to get our adrenaline fun fix
And swap our latest music mix

Today is the day, iv grown up
I must now not drink but rather fill the cup
Those fun years have all come and gone
and all im left with is this empty song
But the future today is coming near
And soon enough it will be here
I will have to work and not play
And the bills will pile up that i must pay
But as i grow old and become cripple with age
You will be there to open up my grown-up cage

Let me be free to float in the sky
And swim up and down no matter how high
I will be able to gather the millions of stars
And do those twirls on venus and mars.
I will make shapes in the cosmos and cloud
And be near and far from everbody in a crowd
I will soar with the birds and butterflies
As you take me to Your Kingdom called Paradise.

Dear God...
