HOW THE LIGHT SAVES

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…..

… …dedicated to: those lights that appear when we least expect them….
