Wake up call....

I sit here thinking of how life is just floating by
I hang down my head and begin to cry
How did my life go so wrong?
And why have I waited so long?

So long I’ve been depressed and blue
I feel as though I have become unglued
So many things lost from being lazy and slack
Please God let me get some control back

I don’t want to live my life this way
So now God all I can do is pray
Help me Lord let go of all the pain and sorrow
I want to live happily today and tomorrow

I want to teach my kids to do things right
To look in the stars and see their future so bright
Let them find guidance in the Lord above
And have a mother they can respect and love

I have opened my eyes and my heart
It’s never too late to make a fresh start
I know as I look out at the stars in the sky
What I need to do and the reasons why

I feel the emotions pouring out of my soul
And for the first time in my life I feel I can let go
I know now my past can not hurt me any longer
And with each passing minute I am feeling stronger

My heart full with love is starting to race
As I close my eyes and a smile comes upon my face
Thank you Lord for the future I see in sight
As I know you were listening to me tonight

I know this was my wake up call
To bring joy to my family,friends, and all
No more will I drowned in darkness and fear
As the message You sent was loud and clear
