Sorry everyone for not visiting your work yet...but had a few thing that made it impossible for me to do. first ...but will catch up on you within a day or two okay!!

Love you all for being so  "nice"  to me :) !!


"Oh Give Me"

Within these words I pen today
I did not lose my trust in you
Because these are the words of a broken heart
That rolls upon the waves of a broken soul
Oh give me the voice that sings
That gives me light in darkness
That strikes through my spirit
Oh give me the eyes to see
The naked beauty of Sunshine
Oh give me the ear to hear
The story of my splendid dreams so true
Oh give me the laughter of a little child
And a tender whisper from your tongue
Oh give me the inspiration to shine
Far above winds and clouds
Oh give me back my sunshine
That will touch the willing heart
And bring back the light in darkness
Oh give me back my heart
Though within these words I pen
I did not lose my trust in you
Beautiful heart!!
