I LEFT MY HEART BEHIND (Song Lyrics)

colorful roses bouquest vector

All the years we’ve been together
I’ve been unable to love you
Love you as I truly should have
Love as only a loved heart can
Hard to do when it’s bound in time
Fighting hard against God’s best plan

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

Each time it hurt and joy suppressed
When those memories came to haunt
I’d hide so very deep inside
Not caring for who I now am
So when love, it came a-calling
It brought me forth as God’s own lamb

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

Tears, they can no longer threaten
To wash and diminish the pain
My new heart can now receive yours
Don’t emotionally pull away
Our two hearts bound eternally
’Cause this love’s heart is here to stay

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

The Story of Tic Toc the Clock and the Part Who Wanted to Live in the Past – or The Helping Hand (Another Poem for the Children)

cartoon-alarm-clock

Tic toc, tickety toc

Hands are going backwards

Forward two, back three

Tic Toc clock sighs as time spins forwards

 

“Big Hand to Little Hand.”  I said, “Big Hand to Little Hand”

You’re moving the wrong way

“I know, I know; but I’m having so much fun

And want to move time back to yesterday

 

Yesterday my hand was stronger

And nothing was an effort

Yesterday the sun shone brighter

And I could see which way to go

Yesterday I was so much younger

And time it moved much slower

 

Today my hand needs a hand to hold

And guide me round and round

Today the sun seems somewhat dimmer

And it’s hard to find my way

Today I’m older, the rhythm of time feels lost

And I can’t keep up with the hour”

 

Then Big Hand replied as he wiped tears from Little Hand’s eyes

“But your hand is in my hand so don’t worry, I’ll lead the way!

Time will march on … the sun’s here to stay

And together we’ll keep time moving forward
