MY WAY BACK HOME

I stand by the water, a bottle in my hand.
The spirits help me face another day.
Think about my wife and kids and do not understand,
How I walked out and threw it all away.
Look out on still waters, tears fall from my eyes.
Drifting through the promises I made.
Promises that float away on dark and clouded skies.
When the wind whispers, the devil must be paid.
But now and then there's laughter in my memories.
Little voices shouting, daddy I love you.
Tears that fall for happy, prayers on bended knees.
Life flowed like a river, dreams did come true.

CHORUS
Lord, help me get back on the road to happiness.
Safe into adoring arms and loving sweet caress.
I need you Lord to guide me, You're my only friend.
Help me Lord, please help me, find my way back home again.

I can't remember when, it started to go wrong.
But, somehow I just lost the will to live.
The shadows and the darkness summoned me to come along.
And gave life with nothing left to give.
I'm walking on a tightrope, my heart is on the brink.
My strength is gone, there's nowhere left to fall.
The bottle gives me nothing but the need for one more drink.
God I pray that you can hear me call.
Cause now and then there's laughter in my memories.
Little voices shouting, daddy I love you.
Tears that fall for happy, prayers on bended knees.
Life flowed like a river, dreams did come true.

CHORUS
Lord, help me get back on the road to happiness.
Safe into adoring arms and loving sweet caress.
I need you Lord to guide me, You're my only friend.
Help me Lord, please help me, find my way back home again.

    The longing feelings in this poem are very powerful and they tug at the heart... Sometimes, we do need a little help to find our right paths in life... This poem was very expressive and nicely penned, Robert!

    This Is a heart gripping tail, that befits most all of us---If we only how many there of us---we might start a club---and do good with the remainder of our days. Thanks for sharing Robert

    Powerful lyric. There is such raw emotion there. Gripping. All God needs is a broken heart, for Him to be able to move in and make whole the shattered parts. Did I just say my first quote... :-). What I'm saying is that, there is hope, acknowledging need for HIS intervention is the first step, and this is present in your poignant lyric. A much deserved 7. HUgs! Kim ... PS. You might want to enter this in Isaiah Zerbt's contest. Check out the contest page. :-)

    what soulful lyrics these are. I wonder how much of it comes from real life experiences. God hears you!
