Standing there, not understanding what lied ahead.
He knew what was coming, so this is what he said.
“Everything’s going to be alright,” he whispered into my ear,
And after what felt like an eternity, the time for those words was here.
I was sitting on the floor, tears running down my face.
It had been a couple years since he told me that phrase.
But while I was on the floor, with my tears rolling down my cheek,
I remembered the words, quiet and weak.
I felt the darkness deep inside my soul,
But I wasn’t going to give up, give up, oh no.
I got up from the ground, and I yelled with all my might,
“Satan, get out of my head!” And that’s when I saw the light.
I knew what I had to do, and I knew it would be tough,
But he gave me strength, and trust me, it was just enough.
I walk with those words always in the back of my mind,
And I say, “Thank you, God, for never leaving me behind.”
