For Monica and baby Camden
Iíve come to the point
In my mindful existence
Where I feel totally alone.
Heís waiting and watching
But canít lend a hand.
He insists I do this on my own.
Heís given me pointers
For the last several years.
Heís opened and closed doors for me.
Iíve practiced and listened
And watched as He proves
That this is who Iím síposed to be.
Now itís my turn to run
And yes, I am worried
Safety seems so far away.
Iím out there exposed
To all friends and foes.
WHY must I do this TODAY?
My Savior, He loves me
I know that He does
And He will until I am old.
His comfort I breathe in
And protection I feel
I just have to grasp it, and hold.
My choice has been made
He is for me.
So why, you may ask, do I worry?
TODAY is the day
Itís the start of the race
And NOW He says, ďDonít HurryĒ?
The sweet little newborn
I hold in my hands
Will be given a dream of his own.
It is my job to teach him
Along with his dad
That the future holds promise or woe.
There will come a day
When the sky turns to gray
Youíll wonder which way you should turn.
Iíll give you my hand and love will display
You are now ready to learn.
Iíll tell you about the love I was given
And list for you all of the choices.
My triumphs and heartaches,
Iíll share with much zeal
Use them, no need for hushed voices.
Ultimately, itís you who must choose.
I can only urge you to think
How many times, when offered the cup
Youíve been inclined to drink.
For now though, my sweet one
Just keep right on dreaming.
Lifeís pleading and prodding at bay.
You can relax, your parents are listíning
For His voice to show you the way.
