Hope in living

So what if my heart got broken I would just fall in love again So what if I fail this time I would just try again next time As far as my heart’s still beating I know there is hope in  living   So what if it’s not working today I will regroup and try…

I Was Wrong

He’s good with Kids That’s the first thing I noticed He never looked more handsome, Than when he spoke about what he loved I could feel the power in his passion I could feel the depth in him He’s perfect I was wrong   When people ask me why I stay All they see is…

Let mother sing

Let me tell you a secret See, my mother loves to sing She sings songs that move her She sings blues that soothes her She sings ballads that please her   Let my mother sing a song Sing to me, sing me lullabies Her sweet voice that lulls me to sleep One that is familiar…
