Grace 06:18
You showed up just in time When I needed so much I took it as a sign It was more than just luck And I knew you were mine When I saw in your eyes Understanding and hope You and me, both When you entered my life So soon after a loss Wasn't sure I could find A path back to love But in seconds I saw It was there all along So I opened my heart It was only the start Now I've seen grace In the dark and the light In the right place  At the right time I had lost all my hope When I lost those three souls Until fate came again Put the moon in my hand For all that I know Those before had a role And they sent you to me Saw what I couldn't see Such a shift toward such change Not as painful this time But a whirlwind no less I held on for dear life But I stayed on the path With machete in hand Cleared the way for the truth To offer me proof I should not have been so surprised I always keep my heart tuned for signs A frequency I never lost in my life

There were two camps One blue, one red We sailed these lakes In hopes of finding land Our leader said “She needs the blood Of a woman to bring her love” I was afraid No one would speak I took the staff And said my peace Look to the skies God save your queen You can take me as your sacrifice I will give my life God save your queen You can take me I was no threat There was no reason But my exile fell into my hands They gave me flowers They burned the trees Then laid me down in the ground Why am woman? Why not a man? If I am willing Take of my body Fill me with peace Give me freedom please I am not afraid to die Don’t feed our goddess upon the blood of our priestess Bring her release

You must understand what’s at stake I don’t want to leave but the plans have been made So please pray for me No wants this more than me But some things simply cannot be And they said it was time and I believed it Maybe a lie, but I believed it Mark down the date and I will return Will changing fate as the fires burn And you can light your own flame to guide us home I’ll make it back to you, it must be done I don’t want to leave you now You must believe that But the choice is not mine to make An unjust war with far too many victims to name

I feel the touch of your hand As Midwinter approaches Though you are gone I can sense you in the dark I know just where you are Though you’ve been gone for some time Though I’ve gone on with my life Still as December descends I feel you here Your spirit shining clear So I remember your smile So I remember The times we shared Nothing can erase them You are there, painted in my memories Everywhere, made of light and shadow I hold you there I won’t just let go just yet I hear your voice on the wind Telling me stories like always And as the snow falls, I send a song to you That only we knew So I remember the love So I remember I feel a peace in my heart I feel that we never parted I know you’re never too far away Your spirit remains
