..Silver Lining..

I cry out in pain, you won’t care for me.
You lock me in closits, it’s dark..I can’t see.
Fear invades my body, I shake and I cry;
I’m only a young child asking the question..why?

Why am I hungry, dirty and sore?
Why do you lock me, behind this big door?
Why can’t you love me, I’m still so very small?
Why don’t you come to me, whenever I call?

A child of just three-four, maybe five;
Should never question why, am I alive.
But you are alive, and time does pass by;
You’ve learned in your young life, it don’t pay to cry.

Now you all grown, and love’s still not there;
You tell yourself, I really don’t care;
But that longing inside you, for someone to love;
So you take to your knees, Praying Father above;

I want to be loved, and give love in return;
I want to be cared for, I’m sure I can learn;
To be a good wife, in spite of my past;
I want a marriage, I know that will last.

He answered my prayers,with the love of my life;
He loved me enough to make me his wife.
A home filled with love, whith the Lord at the head;
I gladly fall to my knees, before getting in bed.

My childhood days..I’ll use to help others;
Help them become, loving fathers and mothers.
I’ll use those hurts to, help them get through;
Showing God’s glory, is something I love to do..
