What would you see

What if we could all take just a minute,
Step back, to see the world and our place in it.

Would we be everything we wanted to be?

A husband to a sweet wife
Working hard to give her the sweet life
While being a compassionate father of five
Trying to teach his kids wrong from right

Oh, what would you see?

Life is worth nothing if it isn't tough
Living on dreams, and working on love
It's not all a bed of roses
There's just one thing I know, it's

That if we could all just stop for a minute
Step back to see the world, and our place in it

We could be everything we wanted to be.

Just don't let life overwhelm you
It's got lessons, i've learned a few
And when it throws you down, the only thing to do

Is get up again, start fighting
If you aren't living, than you're dying
There's no use in denying
You are what you chose to be

Oh, What would you see?

Unexpected Joy

I dared not think it'd come again
The feeling of contentment
For I've been hurt too many times
And bore a a slight resentment.

Life is hard enough without
Trying to hard for naught
It wasn't worth the effort I said.
Well that's what I had thought.

The Lord he tests our patience
To see if we have the worth
To earn blessings he has for us
To be more than who we were.

I admit I had my doubts
That I had something wrong
I didn't think I had a chance
That he just let me be alone.

Looking forward always seems so daunting
Looking back like no time at all
Once I felt it, there was no doubt
It took seconds for me to fall.

I still don't think I deserve this
I still have so much to learn
But I'll do my best to grow
And hope for your feelings to earn.

Sleep my darling

The night has come to comfort you
So sleep, my darling sleep

The troubles of today are through
Your doubts will fall away
Realize what's in store for you
Night will take the cares of day
All I ask from you is this
Just sleep, my darling sleep.

No sorrow will you know my dear
While the night gets older
If you need me I am here
Just rest upon my shoulder
All I ask from you's to wish
Please sleep, my darling sleep.

Take comfort in my arms
As I pull you closer
I will not let you come to harm
I will be your soldier
I'll protect you while you dream
As you sleep, my darling sleep.


-Dedicated to a special someone. In memory of chocolate oranges, and the first time I have ever been touched by this song on a personal level.

Lord, How was it done?

May I commune with thee Oh Lord,
Wilt thou still hear my call?
The tears of life have come to me
Wilt though catch my fall?

The pain and sorrow caused from sin
Do they still bar the way?
Is it too late to feel again
The soothing light of day?

To break through chains that bound me,
Lord how was it done?
When I was lost thou found me
With love, I'm overcome.

I have wandered far from home
And along the path was lost.
But I find that I am not alone,
My Lord, what was the cost?

To break through chains that bound me,
Lord how was it done?
When I was lost thou found me
With love, I'm overcome.

Dear Lord, thou hast not forsaken
Even when I could not hear
Myself, from thee I'd taken
Because of worldly fear.

I thank thee for thy faith in me.
Oh Lord, for I have felt,
The path, and man, thou wouldst have me be
For this cause have I knelt.

To break through chains that bound me,
Lord how was it done?
When I was lost thou found me
With love, I'm overcome.
