I am forever
by Joehanna

I am the haze in the desert
That never leaves
The only thing that’s true
Right in front of you

I am the sorrow
That makes you angry
When you remember
All that you once had

I am the water drop
On your forehead
That lasts only a second
Yet still never goes away

But most of all

I am the night
That doesn’t come knocking
I will step in to your hallway
And wait till it is forever

I was made to tread this road
by toshi becca

Gifted with sight of future things
I behold the road in front of me

And I see

Miles of pain

I see

Years of agony

Still, with all the strength long ago given
I smile and say life is worth living

Cause there is,

Beauty in pain

Glory,

In agony

It was in storms that I became joy unending
In darkness I became faith unbending

Yes I see

The miles of pain

I see

The years of agony

But with a straight back, my head held high, I walk unhesitatingly
Eyes focused on hope as I walk in love eternally

I was made to tread this road
And this road was made for me
That is what I see
