Iím not a religious person but I believe in God.
I believe also in the power of prayer.
Yet sometimes, Iím overwhelmed with Lifeís burdens
And I donít take time to notice all thatís there.

It seems I live my life as though a story
And never listen to my heart nor feel the breeze.
But as soon as a loved one falls sick or dying
I suddenly find strength to fall to my knees.

I know that God knows Iím not evil,
I just donít know what path, yet, Iím on.
My heart hurts so very much inside
When I donít say goodbye till someoneís gone.

Donít you think weíre all like that
Though most may be too proud to confess.
We donít appreciate the love in our lives
Until we have to feel the emptiness.

At twenty-two, youíd think Iíd know better
And let friends and family know of my love.
Sometimes, they leave so suddenly
That goodbyes just never do come.

Two deaths this week has left me shaken
And I find that star that leads to Him.
I donít pray for my good health and fortune,
Only that He opens His gates to let them in.

Do you think that we are being tested
In our belief in Heavenís great Kingdom?
Iíd give anything to say goodbye to them,
Unfortunately, goodbye did not come.

We never know our endings in life,
Iíd hate to be caught in that gray state
Where I havenít said one prayer to Him
And forever sealed my fate.

One second is all that it takes
Before our breath slips away.
Itís only when our hearts break
When we hit our knees and pray.
