INDEX: Forgiven | My Guardian


MELISSA SPEIGHTS

Forgiven

Love and hate,
Pain and pleasure,
All comes together
And is now forgiven.

Sorrow and sadness,
Grace and beauty,
Has all come together
To make us one.

We are one,
Forgotten never.
We are one,
Forgiven forever.

Faith holds me true,
True to you.
As I grow
I know I am one in you.

I have become me,
I ask of you please
Show me your word.
Let me see.

I hear you near me,
Please speak again.
I barely see you,
Move closer please.

Show me your word,
And I shall see you.
Let me tell you,
I feel your love is at hand.

And I will see you.
Tell me you forgive me,
And I will feel free.


My Guardian

I often feel your presence
Even though you're not here
I often feel you close to me
Taking each step along the way.

Feeling your hand in mine
Though I cannot see
I feel you there with me
Holding onto me

Your love is what warms my heart
Your voice is what soothes my fears
Your touch is what brings me peace
Knowing you are there with me

I don't know why you chose me
But I am so glad you did
I needed someone to care for me
And love me the way you did

I wonder sometimes where you are
when I need you the most
But you told me if I ever needed you
To just look inside my heart

You told me to be patient
And that it's ok to cry
Then you took my hand, raised your wings
And taught me how to fly
