THERE IS SOMETHING THAT HAS COME OVER ME LIKE A RAY OF LIGHT HAS OVERSHADOWED MY SOUL.
WHO WOULD HAVE TOLD ME THAT THE STORM WOULD PASS OVER ME WITH ALL THAT HAS COME AND GONE.
I AM CLEANSED WITH GOD'S LOVE ALL AROUND ME AND NOTHING LESS THAN THAT.
I HAVE PASSION BURNING IN ME LIKE A FIREPLACE ON A COLD WINTER'S NIGHT WITH A WARM BLANKET WRAPING ME SO TIGHT.
THIS LIFE THAT I LIVE IS NOT MY OWN AND I AM ON A MISSION TO BE ALL THAT CAN BE NO MATTER WHAT.
WATCHING PEOPLE WASTE THEIR OWN LIVES IS SOMETHING THAT I DO NOT WANT TO SEE.
FOR LIFE IS PRECIOUS AND NOT TO BE TAKEN FOR GRANTED JOY HAS JUMPED INTO MY SPIRIT AND COME OVER TO MY HORIZON.
HAPPINESS HAS BURST OUT ME JUST SO I CAN TELL THE WORLD.
I AM FLOATING ON MY OWN CLOUD.
