Once I knew a name,
Once I played the game,
Once I held such shame,
Once I felt much blame.
I had always wished for more,
As I cried, I fell to the floor,
I tried so hard to open a new door,
As I felt my life washing up ashore.
Finally I’d had it with all the tries,
It was then I suddenly realized,
That all of my lonely and hurtful cries,
Would soon be answered by his eyes.
I dreamt of another way,
I knew I’d be safe in his arms one day,
There was no more to think or say.
I was sure in my heart I would soon be okay.
Now I am thankful that the past has passed,
I am safe in his strong arms at last,
The future is all we together hold,
A lifetime of riches brighter than gold.
