As I lifted my head that moments before hung downward, the smile of a short woman with long red hair greeted me. Though she'll probably never know, the smile I offered back was a mask that hid pain far beyond expression. I reached in my bag for my walkman,
" Could the music that comes from this walkman even save me today?" I said out loud, and the honking horns of drivers trying to swirve out of he way of taxi cabs reassured me no one had heard.
She sang her song, I hardly listened, but whoever she was, she was my friend for a few minutes - a few minutes that I'll remember for the rest of my life. "Isn't what God wants best....," she sang. Tears swelled my eyes, she was telling the truth and I wasn't useto the truth. Years had gone by and I listened to words, words that said, " I love you," "Trust Me," all to many times, none proved true, but her words did...whoever she was. A stranger singing to me on a busy city street..."He loves you more than you love yourself," she continued, a tear fell from my cheek and hit the concreate, another crack in teh cement, they all made sense then - people trying to live their life - make out for themseleves - often to busy for anyone else - to busy to care - to busy to notice- but God saw and she sang her song.
