Just putting it out there. This is a rough draft of a song I’m writing. I just wanted to post something other than all my stuff about depression. I usually post my poetry and such on my other blog, (openingthecreativedoor.blogspot.com) but I usually don’t like to post any songs I write, just in case they ever really go anywhere. This one is more just my personal song so I don’t mind sharing it. One day maybe I’ll be brave and post a video of me singing one of my songs.
Anyway, I just want to say, writing verses and singing songs is when I really feel like me. The me I like. Thanks again for listening.
How Many Ways
How many ways can I say I love you?
How many ways can I give you praise?
How many ways can I be forgiving,
Sing new songs worth singing,
How many ways?
How many times will I need your mercy?
How many times will I call your name?
How many times will I need retrieving,
Will I doubt believing,
How many times?
Yet no matter where I am,
No matter what I do,
Your love for me will stand,
And I will stand with you.
So let my spirit lean
Into your arms of grace,
For your blood has made me clean,
And my soul will sing your praise!
