But Why

I know I’m losing you but I don’t know the reasons
We use to be so good together but ever since that fateful day, not so much
Losing you is something else I don’t want to lose but
Oh dear, it’s coming

It seems it has to be this way
Without any reason
Everything is telling us this
But why

Please, say it’s not true
That I’m not loosing you
I love you too much to not be with you
Come, hold me and tell me you love me and we’ll stay together

It seems it has to be this way
Without any reason
Everything is telling us this
But why

Let these feelings just be in some wacked out dream
I can see myself with you forever and I don’t want to loose that

It seems it has to be this way
Without any reason
Everything is telling us this
But why

The Generous Warmth of Friendship

Things you need or require come to you when you need it
That’s the same with true friends
You cannot force good friendship to come to you; it has to come on it’s on agenda
When you meet friends that are meant for you, your heart will smile
They will make you feel safe, protected and warm
You can talk about anything and everything and, feel warm inside knowing it’s going to be alright
Also, you will start to think about what you did to deserve those people in your life
Their warmth to you/for you is a gift from God
Accept them, give thanks to the Lord and continue to enjoy them
True friends will stay with you, in your heart and you will remember them forever
The Lord generously gave you the warmth of these friends for your future
Show them the love you feel from them and from God
They are blessings to you from Him to continue your journey
Be grateful for the gift and shine on

Acrostic Poetry, Martina McBride

Martina McBride acrostic work

Many times people want to applaud you
And over and over they will
Real to life are your songs
The fans love how their spirits are lifted, no matter what
In all of life’s endeavours, your music gives strength
Not everyone is as inspirational as you
Anxious to see you, that’s how all of your fans feel,

Multiple ways you touch people’s lives
Creating songs that spread a message and
Bring joy to the fans is your specialty
Rain or “shine”, you make all smile
In different ways but it’s all the same
Dreaming of a “Loveland” is where they all go so
Everyone can say this to you without hesitation; THANK-YOU Martina McBride!

Acrostic Poetry

Traumatic Brain Injury feelings- acrostic

True feelings of tears and pain are involved in this experience
Real to life this doesn’t seem at first
Anxiety and confusion take over
Up high in the sky is where our old lives lay
Many factors from that life we cannot get back
Aiming to feel better becomes our new goal
Trying to beat the odds and live a fuller life is something we all strive for
In life however, there are no guarantees and we learn this through our experiences after the fact
Choosing which way to do anything is a difficult task

Broken is how you feel inside
Resulting in you seeming different
Anxious to get going with life is how most feel
Independent from anyone and anything is hard to accomplish
Never conquering old goals is what some have to face as well

Individuals going through this have a hard time grasping things; their families too
Near to you or far, you feel their pain
Jailed is how their emotions feel
Unable to escape to a time where they felt “free”
Rest assured, most make it through this, but
Yes, brain injuries hurt immensely for the person and caregivers

Blown Away

It’s hard to believe you died so I could live and be myself
You didn’t even know me but you did that wondrous thing for me and, well, everyone
I thought that over and w-o-w. Knowing me, I am not sure I would have done the same
You did this for everyone yes but I was overwhelmed when I thought of just ONE.
Thank-you.

I am blown away.

Ever wonder what inspires you to do something?
Ever think about what that “inner voice” is?
That is Him guiding you and telling you what to do and where to go.
Follow Him and you’ll be amazed at the glories.

I am blown away

I also see a photo of the world wrapped up in hands. Those are your hands.
Yikes; the whole world in your hands; care and everything?! Not sure any of us could ever do that.
Wow Lord; you can hold us while you have your hands over the whole Earth.
You know everything too and your love never shakes off.

I am blown away

Every little thing you do for all of us Lord, I am blown away by your love

Amen

Bring It

I am ready
I’m ready to battle this obstacle
This is the one battle I am ready to face
To prove to you that yes, I can do it

Sometimes life can be hard to face
But we gotta fight our way through all of our obstacles that get in our way
Sometimes we gotta face hard challenges in life and make it through but we gotta be strong
And say, bring it!

A lot of times it can be really difficult
But we gotta fight our way through
If we all stay strong, we can hold our heads up high in the end
‘Cause we succeeded through it all

Sometimes life can be hard to face
But we gotta fight our way through all of our obstacles that get in our way
Sometimes we gotta face hard challenges in life and make it through but we gotta be strong
And say, bring it!

Once we make it through, we can all smile and say to ourselves
I made it to the end and now I can breathe
All challenges make us stronger so know that on your endeavours
Sometimes life can be hard to face
But we gotta fight our way through all of our obstacles that get in our way
Sometimes we gotta face hard challenges in life and make it through but we gotta be strong
And say, bring it!

The Truth

Martina McBride,
I am going to try to explain to you what your music means to me and I’m sure others.
Your songs are heartfelt and they feel real vs. feel like just another song; if you catch my drift. You sing about everything from life to love to everything else! Most others just sing about or have hits about romantic love. They (your songs) also make people feel a wide range of emotions. From happy to focused on someone/something; it is amazing.
On a personal note, I feel all different kinds of emotions and in some songs, more than one emotion will hit. There are days I need to hear at least one song from you. Once that happens; everything seems and feels alright. Here’s a truth- your music helps keep my emotions in line and I actually feel more emotionally “equipped” afterwards.
