The magnitude of what lies before me

It takes my breath away

So much at stake

So much to do

And all the while

The world keeps spinning

Not slowing down at all

I’m overwhelmed and under attack

Bit by bit eating away my hope

I get outside of the here and now

And worry begins to take over

For now all I can do is try to rest

And start over again tomorrow

When He Sees Me


When will it happen

When will he come

Will he feel a connection

Will he know I’m the one

Tonight I’m feeling lonely

Tonight I’m feeling blue

Tomorrow is what I dream of

Tomorrow for me and you


And as an added bonus…
