Life's Door... - Poem by Taunya Benns
I came to you a simple child, in years it was not so; kept within a small glass box, not allowed to grow.
You came to me with such loving words, to help me understand; what I call my life was nothing more than a script made from a man.
Cheated of life and all the joys that other people know; finally because of you & God’s will; that life I have let go.
I've learned that pride is what I lack; I never knew this before; needing to thank you for everything, before I walk through life's door.
The door that lies in front of me, that leads to a life just for me; to a new beginning with clarity of what life should truly be.
My heart will forever be with you, soon the world will see; because of you I'll guide my world to joys eternally.
I will never look back, or wish for unknowns, I'll never shed a tear; finally my future is not cloudy but ever much so clear.
Settling for less, needing to please, Is simply all I knew; my happiness was another’s smile until the moment I met you.
As I close Life's door from a painful past, I beg you to let me go; unless I'm alone focusing on me, self love I will never know
So smile and be happy, because I know God sent you my way; a pawn for God to help me grow, He knew I could never stay.
Blessings shall follow you all your life, for your sacrifice for me; giving your heart unconditionally just to set me free.
A small glass box is all I knew, now I see life so grand; the key to my heart eternally Dear Love I place only in your hand.
As I walk away, please know, the last tear was shed for you; today I let go of all my trials, and all the pain I've been through.
I shall not cry I'll only pray, and ask God forever more; for the one you dream of, someday will walk through your life's door!
For now I'll say goodbye~~~~ but listen for one moment please.
Maybe I'm the one you dream of, I guess in the future we'll see; I pray that G-d will help you one day, and you will just let me be me.
If that day never comes I'll still live my life waiting you see; please understand I am who I am~~~ Forever myself I shall be!
