I SAW HER DRESSED IN BLACK
IN MANY LAYERS
HER BACK WAS BENT OVER A SHOPPING CART
THE CART HAD HER POSSESSIONS
MEAGER AS THEY WERE

SHE WAS ALONE, AS SHE ALWAYS WAS
IN THE OLD DOWNTOWN AREA
MY FRIEND AND I WERE PRAYER WALKING
PRAYING FOR SOULS AN MINISTRY
THEN WE SAW HER AS WE WALKED BY

I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HER
BRIGHT BLUE EYES THAT LOOKED DIRECTLY INTO MINE
HER LOOK OF PEACE AND ACCEPTANCE

THIS HAS HAUNTED MY DAYS AND NIGHTS
I WORRY THAT WHAT HAPPENED TO HER IN LIFE WOULD HAPPEN TO ME.

SHE DIED IN A MOTEL ROOM ALONE
BETTER OFF THEN MOST HAD THOUGHT
SHE LIVED AND DID THE BEST SHE COULD
WITH THE LIFE THAT WAS GIVEN TO HER

KNOW IN JESUS' ARMS
THERE IS NO MORE FEAR, NO MORE STRUGGLES, AND NO MORE RESIGNATION

ONLY LOVE,PEACE AND A GLORIOUS LIFE.

WHY IT HAUNTS ME IS MY
OWN FEAR, MAYBE UNFOUNDED
THAT IT COULD HAPPEN TO ME

I DON'T THINK THIS IS MY CALL
GOD CALLED ME TO OTHER THINGS

BUT YOU NEVER KNOW SHE MAY HAVE EMBRACED HER CALL
AND SHE WOULD HAVE RAN FROM MINE

WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT; THE CHOICES WE HAVE MADE IN LIFE ARE DIFFERENT OUR FEARS ARE DIFFERENT - BUT
JESUS NEVER CHANGES AND HE KNOWS US ALL

Much to ponder here - nicely written. I would suggest that you not type in all caps - it's a bit harder to read, and on the internet it is considered shouting. :) Great atmosphere in this piece.
