My heart is heavy
Sometimes it feels like I’m not even here
But somewhere else
I wish I could soar on the wind
I wish I could have not a care in the world
I wish I could change
I wish, I wish…
Why can’t I have the legs of a deer?
Why can’t I leap over fences and obstacles?
The mountain stands so tall and straight
Why then, do I resemble the water?
The clouds circle overhead and rain down
My tears flow with them, one and the same
I stand my ground at the ocean’s edge
But it pulls me in
The sun shines down
And I can shine with it or become dark as the night
Music dances in my head
Soft lullabies or tumbling masterpieces
My feet are steady and firm
But sometimes all I can manage is my knees
The wind blows away the past
The flowers sing of the future
My heart is joyful
Splashes of color dot the sky
Whispering of their Creator’s knowledge
I can’t help smiling at the brilliance of sunshine
The mountain peaks
Are amazing to behold
The soft streams
Peaceful to a great extent
Silent moments are one of the most meaningful
Laughter, the most cherished.
I like to lift my hands in surrender
High up to the sky, to My Lord and Savior
Let me hear a joyful noise
Sing to me of God’s greatness.
My heart will pound
To the rhythm of His drum
What a beautiful fate is mine
This fate one calls life
