    from waves
    skyscraper tall
    grew the perfect storm
    and in the {end}
    a sanomi was born

    when the waves climbed high
    ...crashed down upon me
    i closed my eyes
    to the deadly possibility
    as pain and fear swept over me
    i looked to GOD
    and began to pray

    JEHOVAH
    my FATHER
    YOU'VE treated me good
    showed me things no one else could
    and when my heart was drowning in sorrow
    YOU showed me visions of a greater tomorrow
    YOU lifted my spirit that i might not fall
    allowed me to prosper while awaiting YOUR call
    YOU'VE sheltered my family from life's gruesome rains
    when my road washed out...YOU allowed me to change
    there were signs YOU gave that could have prevented this
    but i was wrapped up in me...so those signs, i missed
    i'm not asking for my life...let YOUR WILL be done
    just hold onto my family...please, watch over my sons
    if it is YOUR WILL that i perish this day
    i thank YOU for the time
    in YOUR son's {Jesus} name, i pray.

    THANK YOU.

    REAL

    this is some major stuff here...
    and when God is leading
    you're never lead to jump
    but to persevere...
    great piece.
