At sixteen years I was alone
I had no place to call my home

School all day, worked all night
Stole to eat and had to fight

In my car in winter stayed
Hard to sleep, seldom prayed

Suppressed the pain, hid the tears
This went on for many years

One bright spot in life I had
All else around made me sad

To one person I gave my love
I felt she was from up above

At seventeen was college bound
Still alone no peace was found

Night life and parties were the stay
Lived at night, slept all day

One semester then to work
Made mistakes like a jerk

The one I loved away did fly
Many times I longed to die

Then one day to church I went
Testimonies gave and witness spent

About his life a young man did speak
He was alone, his life seemed bleak

How God appeared, his life did heal
To my soul this did appeal

While contemplating this very thought
A light appeared and me it sought

He called my name, my eyes did blind
In my head he spoke and time did bind


You’ll never be alone if you follow me
Your heart will sore, your eyes will see

A repented heart, a new track I sought
Free from fear and the life I fought

He’s now my love and truest friend
He changed her heart and to me did send

Now together in Christ’s love
This match was made from up above

Twenty-five years have passed us by
We live and love, laugh and cry

A child eleven, one eighteen
Life is great, our love still keen

So on we go with God our guide
Taking it all with love in stride

Then one day with God we’ll stand
And rest forever in His hand
