Used To


I used to just wait for You

To show me my next move

what step to take

To give me strength

Helpless and reaching

For freedom to embrace

Grace to get through

A glimmer of something new

But not anymore

Now I’m checking every door!


String of Pearls


You were my pearls

What I didn’t want to give away

But there was another gift waiting

Waiting for me to walk away

And now as I look behind me

I wonder what I ever saw

What I thought was bright and shiny

Looks nothing like a pearl at all
