I WAS THERE
I was standing in line waiting to see God. When I got to the gate I told him my name.
He knew who I was, so of course I was shame. He said I know who you are, no need to speak. Let me tell you about yourself and all of your deeds.
I saw what you did that day on the streets. When no one was looking you fed those in need.
I remember that night you cried out to me. You thought I wasn’t there, but I rocked you to sleep.
You told me one day when you was driving down the street. You said you could never repay me but there was no need.
I was with you that day; you thought you were going to die. I shielded and protected you. That’s why your car didn’t collide.
Remember when the doctors said you wouldn’t make it to your 1st birthday, but I had purpose for you and here you are today.
I’m sorry that guy broke your heart the way he did, but I needed you to give birth to something and pain was the only way in.
There’s not a day you’ve been here that I wasn’t there. I know a lot of things happened that seemed unfair.
I just want you to know I’ve always been there with you. Even with the mistakes you’ve made and you thought I was through.
