Written by Donald Hughes
I sit and I wait,
I watch and I pray;
After all, He knows my fate,
And what I think and say.
So I sit, and hope it will start,
This life I’ve been waiting for;
After all, doesn’t He know my heart?
Won’t He give me wings to soar?
So I sit, and I look to the sky,
With my hopes and dreams at bay;
Come now, I plea as I wonder why,
Let me get started on living today!
But alas, He doesn’t come with magic or spell,
And I’m left to begin on my own.
Why He didn’t answer my plea I can not tell,
So I rise up and begin the journey alone.
Suddenly, as I take steps to start my life,
And do what I need to do to begin,
I feel different somehow, less stress and strife;
Like windows and doors have been open.
Perhaps I’m not alone, on this long journey,
And all I had to do was just start it;
His love, help and support I could easily see,
Once I took the steps and moved a little bit.
The faith to live, love, and move is never easy,
But your dreams are more that mere notion;
Inspiration, and answers to prayers, you will only see,
Once your feet, hands and heart are in motion.
