    One left this year, one left years ago.
    But neither one of you truly left my side.
    You've been talking to me all the while,
    Trying to be my guide.

    And then today it happened again.

    You showed me the light
    that took you away that day.
    My gut felt your essence that night,
    when you would exhale no more.

    I couldn't contain my cries.
    My soul opened up.

    But I couldn't or wouldn't see.
    Even with my eyes opened wide.
    Finally mercy handed me a key,
    You were trying to show me something

    As my realization exploded in tears,
    You never, ever left me
    alone with all my fears.

    Thank you Jesus, truth unfolding,
    I opened and embraced myself
    with the same hands you've been holding
    me up with for all these years.
    My own.
    I'll never ignore your voices again.
