 Reflections of My Heart

I Choose To Dance  ღ KKD ღ

I Choose To Dance

This past year
had dealt such mighty blows
With so much of life
well that's how it goes

On can choose the past
and become stagnant and old
Or reach into the future and live
or so the story is told.

I choose to move forward
leaving in the past
Those who choose  
to keep me as an outcast

Their loss or mine
does it really matter
A loss it will always be
a light to never shine brighter

Within my heart
all loves are safely kept
My eyes now dry
of the tears I've wept

Life lessons I have learned
I pray to not repeat
I will move forward
I just cant retreat

I will love in return
those who choose to do so
Those I have lost
I will find a way to let go

To hide from life
will not void the pain
I have nothing left to lose
and everything to gain

With God by my side
His guidance and grace
I will survive this thing called life
to the end of my race

Its not how one weathers the storm
It's all in reaching out to take a chance
I will fear not the thunder
For I know I must always choose to Dance

Kiss The Rain

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...
But then I have found thats really not up to me... ღ
