Witness To My Life

Witness To My Life

written by: Ginny M. Jones

 

Do for me the things I do for you.
We can be the one from these two.
Be the witness to my life.

When I stumble and when if I fall,
Be the one who feels it all.
Be the witness to my life.

When the day is done,
And I’m tired from the run,
Be the witness to my life.

The battles that I have to fight,
At day’s end help me make it alright.
Be the witness to my life.

When exhaustion is rolling down my face,
Hold my hand; help me finish the race.
Be the witness to my life.

Stand by me, my biggest fan,
Help me do all we can.
Be the witness to my life.

When the noise of the world just won’t cease,
I ask that you will be my peace.
Be the witness to my life.

Hold the mirror up for me.
Show me the self that I can’t see.
Be the witness to my life.

Life a series of highs and lows,
My strength is knowing it’s I you chose.
Be the witness to my life.

On those days when laughter rings,
Share with me when our souls sing.
Be the witness to my life.

Let me grow and be magnified,
But hold me close, in you I reside.
Be the witness to my life.

At the end of the road when my work is done,
When I slip away to meet the Son,
Be the witness to my life.

All this and more I offer to you
This what it means to make one from two.
Be the witness to my life.

I have always been a writer, letting my thoughts and emotions spill out on paper where I can express myself in a way I can’t do verbally. Perhaps because some things are too difficult to verbalize. Some things you can’t bear to say out loud. Once they’re given voice they become living extensions of ourselves. So, at a young age, I began to write. I wrote in notebooks and on notebooks. On scraps of paper and abandoned napkins. My mother saw this and bought me a journal for my birthday one year. I remember flipping through those blank pages envisioning my words written on them, thinking that now, finally, I could say some things! I'm still saying some things.
