Oh how I wish life was different
And filled with love and peace
Be the person Gods called me to be
And cause selfish desires to cease.
I need to surrender everything
And lay it all down
Remember that God is king
It is He who wears the crown.
The love that Christ has for the church
I wish that love was in me
Then I would truly realize
That God has set me free.
I know I’ve failed many times
And frustrated you to no end
That’s not how I want to be
I want you to be my friend.
The road is long strait and narrow
And we are stronger side by side
And if I put my faith in Him
He’ll change my heart of pride.
I need to apologize
For I have a bitter heart
But as you can forgive me
I’d like to make a fresh start.
Start something that will last
Something tried, trusted and true
Forget about our trouble and disappointment
And make it better for me and you.
This is not a poem of celebration
But it truly needs to be
With all the trouble we’ve gone through
It’s a miracle there is still a you and me.
You know I’m a slow learner
And it’s been forty-seven years
But God hasn’t given up
He’s still working on my doubts and fears.
So, I wish you Happy Anniversary
I hope it touches your heart
And from this point forward
With God’s help I will live up to my part.
