Is There Someone Somewhere?

Is There Someone Somewhere?

Is there someone somewhere?
Someone with whom I can share?
The many burdens I bear,
Lord please hear my prayer,
I long for someone.

Just a letter or two,
A visit from you,
Will brighten this cell,
Ease the pain of this hell,
There must be someone somewhere.

If this song is for you,
Please make my wish come true,
For I long for a friend,
On whom I can depend,
Would you please be that someone.

Just a letter or two,
A visit from you,
Will brighten this cell,
Ease the pain of this hell,
There must be someone out there.

Remember Me!

I remember one night as I lay in my bed,
Hearing frightened angry voices,
I could not tell what they said,
So I crept to the door and peeked through a crack,
And then what I saw caused me to run back.

I closed my eyes and covered my ears,
“God please let this be one of my nightmares,
Let me awake from this horrible dream,”
But I knew it was real and I wanted to scream!

“Please do not take my Daddy away,
Take those chains off his hands and let him stay,
I love him! I need him! I do not want to cry,
I do not want to tell my Daddy goodbye.”

There were lights that were flashing and cars drove away,
And all night long through my tears I would pray,
“God please help my Daddy and my Mommy too,
I am just a child there is nothing I can do.”

I miss you Daddy and I want you to know,
There is a love in my heart that continues to grow,
For even though you are not here and I do not understand,
I remember the times when you held my hand.

I love you Daddy and you always will be,
The greatest Dad in the world to me.

“Be inspired, be blessed”
