Where Shall I Go From Here?

we have walked along together holding each other
i had fallen many times and you were always there

i often cried and wailed with my bruises and pain
you wiped my tears, said there’s more in life to gain

you lift my chin, i gaze into your eyes, i believe then
my world is never an empty space, it was my haven

you were my angel who stood with your mighty wings
years that came and passed are the joy your heart brings

it brought me into a garden of bounty flowers of hope
and in my life’s darkness, i know i would never grope

along the way is a crossed road, i look back at you
wanting to ask “where shall i go from here?” lost a clue

but my angel was gone and could not come my way
my angel broke his promises and slowly slipping away

i stood still on this crossed road, stunned like a child lost
so empty, realized that here came the day i feared most

alone i fell again, “where shall i go from here?” i couldn’t tell
now my angel left me in a place between heaven and hell
