With all Iíve been through,
I thank God, Iím still here.
Iíve loved, Iíve learned, Iíve laughed,
Had sorrow, shed many aí tear.
Iíve gained much, lost plenty,
Things, precious and people, dear.
Iíve stood, Iíve stumbled,
Been dumbfounded, had fear.
Iíve been doubted, felt routed,
Had much to say, no one to hear.
I survived the good, bad, and ugly,
Battled my past toward a future, unclear.
Perhaps you couldíve done it better,
Being adept, in all things top tier.
But, God made us all unique.
That I canít be you, you canít be me, is clear.
As for me, a smile of grace upon my face,
Knowing my Godís mercy is ever near,
All I know is with all Iíve been through,
I just thank God, that Iím still here.
Iím Still HereÖ
O Lord, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. Ps. 30:3
