It’s so special to be loved
By family and friends,
And to have sincere relationships
Where integrity doesn’t end.
But unfortunately in life
Things may not go our way,
When circumstances change abruptly
And where memories remain.
Our best friend may betray us
And slander us indeed,
When the seed of envy grasps the heart
And lies the heart it feeds.
Our spouse may suddenly die
And so unexpectedly,
Where all our hopes and all our dreams
Are just a memory.
Our siblings may move on
To a country far away…
And that dependency we once had
In our heart will now remain.
Although our parents age gracefully
They’re restricted in all they do,
And they will now depend on us
And to be a blessing too.
Ultimately only God
Can fill that void within…
Since He’ll never leave us nor forsake us
And understands the pain we’re in.
He will send the right people
When we have a desperate need,
He protects and orphan and the widow
And the hungry mouth He feeds.
Let’s not be afraid of trials
Since once we’ve overcome,
We have authority to speak and act
To be a blessing to someone.
Our dependency should be on God
As He’s the provider of our life,
And every good thing for us to enjoy
Our Creator is such a delight!
