A MINUTE FROM HEAVEN
I live a life that seems more than half way done,
Started at a beginning, seen more than sun to sun.
I've walked this land and had my share of pain,
Friends whom have come and gone, love them just the same.
A family through struggles and laughter,
Children grow up so fast, will they only remember my name?
I had my share of good, other things I've paid the price,
All i ask of you dear lord is that you consider my fight.
A minute from heaven is what we have each day,
Step by step when the time has come, would you kindly
Show me the way.
