Living after death
If tomorrow starts without me,
and I'm not there to see,
if the sun should rise and find your eyes
all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
the way you did today,
while thinking of the many things,
we didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me,
as much as I love you,
and each time that you think of me
I know you'll miss me too;
but when tomorrow starts without me,
please try to understand,
that an angel came and called my name,
and took me by the hand,
and said my place was ready,
in Heaven far above,
and that I'd have to leave behind
all those I dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye
for all my life,
Id always thought,
I didnt want to die.
I had so much to live for,
so much left yet to do,
it almost seemed impossible,
that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays,
the good ones and the bad,
the thought of all the love we shared
and all the fun we had
If I could relive yesterday,
just even for a while,
Id say goodbye and kiss you
and maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized,
that this could never be,
for emptiness and memories
would take the place of me.
And then I thought of worldly things,
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did,
My heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through heavens gates,
I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me,
From His great golden throne.
He said, This is eternity,
and all Ive promised you.
Today your life on earth is past,
but here life starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow,
but today will always last,
and since each days the same way
theres no longing for the past.
You have been so faithful,
so trusting and so true.
Though there were times
you did some things
you knew you shouldnt do.
But you have been forgiven
and now at last youre free.
So wont you come and take my hand
and share your life with me
So when tomorrow starts without me,
dont think were far apart,
for every time you think of me,
Im living here, in your heart.
My destiny is you
You know it was your destiny,
For you to find me.
And yes its true,
Mine was to find you.
Now we're together we'll never be split,
What ever troubles us we'll get through it.
Now that I'm here I'll always be around,
Your one true love has finally been found.
Everyone could see from the moment you was born
That i was the one meant to fix your heat when its torn
You're the thought on my mind every single night,
And the one when I see morning light.
I'll never be without the one I call my girl,
If I ever am my life will die at that fatal twirl.
You're the one who keeps me breathing each and every day,
For as long as I live I'll be here to stay.
The amount I love you it don't seem real,
Our relationship is strong; it's my life and God's deal.
You're the one I live for every single day
We'll be together, forever, what do you say?
That' a simple answer it's an all around yes,
I can't wait for the day you put on that wedding dress.
I'm here to love you always, every single moment,
We're so perfect together, we don't miss one component.
I picture you lying here right next to me,
What would we do? What would it be?
Well things have changed cause back then I just wanted fun,
But now I love you, I want one daughter and son.
The boy can be called Josh as you would like,
Just remember, I'll teach him to ride a bike.
That's the future lets focus on now,
Will we continue to be one? If so how?
Remember it was destiny for me to find you,
Every word of that is oh' so true.
And for you to find me,
yes it is destiny
Not looking back
Our lifestyles be close captioned
addicted to fatal attractions
No fairy tales for this young black male
Some see me stranded in this land of hell, and jail waiting
until God sends me my mail
Wishing I live my life a legend, immortalized in pictures
Why shed tears? Save your sympathy
My childhood years were spent burying my peers in the cemetary
Here's a message to the newborns, waiting to breathe
If you believe then you can achieve
Just look at me
Against all odds, though life is hard we carry on
Living in the projects, broke with no lights on
To all the seeds that follow me
protect your essence
Born with less, but you still precious
Just smile for me now
Now as I open up my story
with the blaze
And you can picture thoughts slowly
up on phrases I wrote
And I can walk you through the days that I done
I often wish that I could save everyone
but I'm a dreamer
Have you ever seen a nigga who was dry in the rain
overlooking his tomorrows and they finally came?
Look back on childhood memories and I'm still feeling the pain
live too long in my past you will go insane
To many hassles in my local life, surviving the strain
But when I focus on reality I broke and in chains
Had a dream of living wealthy and making it big
And after all my momma's thanking God for blessing ha child
All my momma gots to do now is collect it and smile
A note to a distant lover
If we were in each others arms
In a never-ending loving embrace
If we were locked at the lips
In a never-ending kiss
We'd be in heaven
Though there's so much space between us
I'm still right by your side
Even if I can't head there right now
Darling I'll be with you tonight
In your dreams
In your heart
I'm always by your side
In your mind I'm your pride
Even death won't keep us apart
Love is always there in you heart
In heaven or in hell
You're my saving grace
I'm the free key to your cell
In you I find my peace
In you find a helping hand
To save us from the things we've lost
So that we can learn to live again
Heaven is here for us to find
In our hearts
Without love we'd be blind
But then again love is the sight that we seek
And the heaven that we'd find
