Where We Belong

Once, I was drowning in my fears
and the twinkle in my eye disappeared
and I had no way to look on
my horizon seemed to have gone
and my whole life, seemed empty and bleak
each day and night, the answers I seek

But when, the darkness seemed so strong
and I couldnt go on
to the sky I raised my hands
making right what was so wrong
I found the strength to carry on
up to heaven where I belong

In life, there are lessons to be learned
with steadfastness, paradise Is earned
and if, all hope seems to be gone
just hold on till after the storm
and if you ask, what purpose have I
why am I here, and why do I cry?

And when, the darkness seems so strong
and you just cant go on
pray for your helping hand
youll see the sun will rise again
youll find the strength to carry on
up to heaven where you belong

Cos life is but a journey for us all
we cry, we laugh, we run sometimes we fall
but through it all, always recall
God never gives, a burden too tall
