The Girl I Used To Be

Somewhere back in the memories in my mind
is filled with thoughts back in time.
There once was a girl,
who knew who she was and
where she was going.
Now she is a woman entering into a life of the unknowing.
Where did I lose her?
I don't even know how.
Is she the woman that I am now?
Or the little girl I left behind
the child that still exists in the corner of my mind.
There are times when I felt
my life was running wild
and then I long
to have the innocence of that child.

I wish I could erase all this pain
to become that innocent child once again.
Time has stood still between us
and we have nowhere to go.
The girl I use to be
slips further down below.
I try to find a place
where time does not stand still and sit there
alone to face my self-will.
I seek love and guidance from the Lord above.
He is the one person who can shelter me with love.
He loves me without any kind of pretense
He takes me to a world
that makes sense.

I miss that girl I used to be
that same little girl that once ran free.
Free to be anyone her heart desired.
To grow up to be the type of woman people would admire.
Lord, you took me from a world
where I once sat alone
You called me by name
and you brought me home.
You took a little girl and a woman
and merged them as one.
Now my new life has begun.
The child I was, now has become a spiritual woman.
Taking back the innocence that was stolen.

You told me that I could be born again
You told me that I could be forgiven for my sins.
You gave me the chance to go back in time
and to claim the purity
that once was mine.
You have forgiven me for my sins and I feel free at last.
and not to be haunted by the memories of my past.
Lord I am so thankful for the life you have given.
and for blessing me with a life to keep on living.
You ignited my spirit with your love for me;
You gave me back
the faith of that girl I used to be.
