Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Love can set us free
From the depths of fear and pain where I lay
You held me up and put me on a pedestal
You honored me with your love and care
Allowing me to breath above the suffocating darkness

A devotion like yours I had never encountered
Rejection and pain was all that I knew
You took my hand gently and looked into my eyes
Then asked me to trust one last time, in you

I saw the truth in your compassionate heart
Your strong hands broke away the chains that bound me
With unselfish love you soothed my wounds
You held me tight until I was steady once more

You took me to the hills where the air is always fresh
Being home breathed new life into my soul
I rose from the ashes like a Phoenix reborn
Because of you I see the sun again
