Have You Ever................

Updated on June 9, 2015

Have you ever –
Closed your eyes trying to see them in your mind?
Do you hug yourself real tight so,
You can feel them touch you deep inside?
Is there a time you have those days when,
Nobody is at your side?
Wonder when that special person will come into your life?

Have you ever broken down and cried?
Wonder why most of your friends are no longer by your side?
Not everybody can make you feel like you are on cloud nine.
Sometimes we all need that great moment in time.
Everybody wants a friend who can help them through life.

Have you ever thought when you come home after work,
You would have that someone waiting at the doorway?
Faithfully looking excited when asking about your day.
Always there to give you a welcome home kiss.
Holding them real tight will help your mind dismiss,
That empty feeling of loneliness.

Have you ever took a moment before going to bed,
Closing the eyes while lowering your head?
Do you ever thank God when you kneel and pray?
Thanking him for all the things that have come your way?

All the friends and times you spend with them.
Having those special feelings which warm you within.
Have you ever just stared at a sunset?
Just amazed and transfixed on that single moment.
The beauty and warmth fills your soul.
Everything else can not touch or,
Buy that moment you refuse to let go.

There is this serenity you feel,
An overwhelming emotion letting you know that it is real.
It flows from head to toe,
Binds every part of your soul.
Nothing can take that away – Nothing at all.

Always remember – you are never truly alone.
Though times of strain may reach a high echelon,
The life you live – always creates those bonds of affection.
An everlasting connection which will last forever and a day –
Within everyone.
