 Reflections of My Heart

My Way

My Way
I really don't understand
the mistakes I continue to make
I try to be true to all that I meet
yet some insist that all of me they take

I'm old and tired
the fight is just to great
In everyone's life
there comes the time of checkmate

I have fought the good fight
I've loved so very deep
but this hill I now face
is just to steep

My Heavenly Father I fall at your feet
I pray for Your forgiveness
For I have not the strength to fight
and I now need a life of heavenly richness

I see no further meaning to my existance
I have loved all that I can
Its time for an end to the pain
and to return to where I began.

I followed where I felt you have lead
I have tried to live in your pathway
Upon this earth I just have no place
I ask that You take me home to stay

Let the record show
I took the blows
and did it My Way.....

My Way

Yes there were times
I'm sure you knew
when I bit off more than I could chew
but thru it all without a doubt
I ate it up and spit out I faced it all
and I stood tall and did it my way

I've loved
I've laughed and cried
had my fill ... my share of losing
and now as tears subside
I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
and may I say not in a shy way
Oh no no not me
I did it my way.

ღ God ask me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
 I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...ღ
