The Answers Appear When I Drop Down To My Knees
Author: Terrie*


my life is falling apart
what is happening to me
I'm tending to those that I love
and mostly those I do not know
I admit
I forget to take care of me

I cry and take my problems
to a man that no longer is alive
his answer I do not know
but if he were alive
I know each word
and what he would say

I believe that is why
i continue to go to him today
I feel like I've
messed up some where
and he won't judge me
cause he knows all about me
as i am still searching myself

the thing my love hated to see the most
was tears falling down
he held me so tight and, say there
not one tear drop left
so baby do not ever be afraid
but to be honest
afraid is what I am
and afraid is what I live
ever wake up from a sound sleep and cry
cause there was no one there for you to hold

I have done that many times,
and I get a vision after my last tear
telling me that I am not a lone
but it is my faith
that is is preventing me
from receiving my gifts
so I wipe away these tears and I begin to see a hazy cloud
then my heart feels like it is being lifted up
I feel my tears forming again
but this time not from the pain
but from the grace
that God has placed upon my crown

I drop down to my knees
and I beg for his forgiveness
for taking lifes precious things for granted
and I fall back asleep
with him watching over me.

You have so much inside to give,
You are blessed everyday through,
But listen to my words for you,
Terrie like others I love you dear,
Terrie without you to read my page would be blank,
Look after you give back to you more thn you give to those,
Stay around for many a year,
look after you my friend and you can then look after others as well.
love ya words from a gental soul
