EPIC Song Blog

Saturday, July 02, 2011

My inspirational song is actually kind of a sad one, at least it was to me.. at first. Then I thought about this wonderful boy and how he truly was a miracle. A selfless, loving miracle. It gives me hope. Here are the lyrics.

I met God's Will on a Halloween night
He was dressed as a bag of leaves
It hid the braces on his legs at first

His smile was as bright as the August sun
When he looked at me
As he struggled down the driveway, it almost
Made me hurt

Will don't walk too good
Will don't talk too good
He won't do the things that the other kids do,
In our neighborhood

I've been searchin', wonderin', thinkin'
Lost and lookin' all my life
I've been wounded, jaded, loved and hated
I've wrestled wrong and right
He was a boy without a father
And his mother's miracle
I've been readin', writin', prayin', fightin'
I guess I would be still
Yeah, that was until
I knew God's Will

Will's mom had to work two jobs
We'd watch him when she had to work late
And we'd all laugh like I hadn't laughed
Since I don't know when

Hey Jude was his favorite song
At dinner he'd ask to pray
And then he'd pray for everybody in the world but him


Before they moved to California
His mother said, they didn't think he'd live
And she said each day that I have him, well it's just
another gift
And I never got to tell her, that the boy
Showed me the truth
In crayon red, on notebook paper, he'd written
Me and God love you

I've been searchin', prayin', wounded, jaded
I guess I would be still
Yeah that was until...
I met God's Will on a Halloween night
He was dressed as a bag of leaves

We should all be a little more like this, and when I play it it makes me cry. Not only because of the actual "story line" but also because he is the kind of person we try to teach our own children to be. Because... well, just because. So there's my song. Hope you enjoyed it. Here's the link if you want to listen.

    That's a beautiful song and I will have to click the link so that I can hear it other than in my head. We all have to keep "readin', writin', prayin' and fightin' " to get where we need to be. It's good to remember that.
