It occurs to me that I never let you know
That what you did for me I bet I didn’t show
My heart was down-trodden, beaten down from years of words
I couldn’t speak, I was way too afraid
but it’s true you saved my life
I bet you never heard.
Now you may think how can that be
You may wonder how in the world
but I assure you – your light was felt
coming and going – and I know somehow you were there for me.
The light you provided at just the right time
sometimes made me fearful
sometimes made me laugh
and sometimes your light directed me
back to the right path.
I bet you never knew that what you did really had an impact for good.
I bet you never had a clue
I bet you never knew that when my head was nearly under water
your hand pulled me up – it was you.
When the waves crashed
When the undertow threatened to drag me down
When the rip tide was pulling me far away
your hand was the hand I reached for without making a sound.
Oh here there were tears and lots of noise
All of the usual going through the motion
and none of the joy
You see without a word – your presence was known
I bet you didn’t know
I regret that I didn’t thank you
and that I didn’t show
Today the word hope is wrapped around my heart
Today gray is not grey as before
I bet you didn’t know that what may have been meant for bad
God used you to turn it all around to give me a new start
So I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart
Your light flickering as it did gave me a reason
I know that people come in and out of our lives at just the right time
I know that sometimes they are only here for a season.
But thank you nonetheless
thank you from the bottom of my heart
I hope you can forgive me
You saved my life and I will never forget
I would have liked to have told you
that’s the only thing that I regret.
Sometimes we have no idea how we can impact someone’s life, or even a song on the radio can….did you know that God may have placed it and them there….right when we were willing to hear…Remember to share …your story…who knows – they could be the life you save…..
