CAROLYN JOYNER


 

I call her an angel, the first day we met.

She changed my life, a moment I won't forget.

Her precious smile that lights the way.

She brightens my life each and every day.

I call her my friend, who made my life better.

I treasured every moment that we were together.

When I'm with her, it's where we belong.

Every time I saw her, our bond grew strong.

I call her sweetheart, she showed her compassion.

She made me feel special on every occasion.    

She's an amazing lady who touched my heart.

How happy she made me right from the start. 

Our six years together ended when she passed away.

That joy we had is gone and it left me astray.

I'm left with a pool of tears and I'm here all alone.

But through my grief I know, that God took you home.

Pauper's Grave

 


Don't bother with this body,

I'm no longer here.

It belongs in a pauper's grave,

my instructions are clear.

Please don't call anyone,

even if they are next of kin.

If they came when I was alive,

I would gladly invite them in.

I received no assistance,

from my family or friends.

No reason to help me now,

for my life came to an end.

There is no need for a funeral,

and no tears to shed.

No need for an obituary,

to say I'm dead.

Now you know my message,

so don't be sad.

God has called me home,

you should be glad.

Another Moment Of Truth

 


Everyone needs help, that's nothing new.

The real question is, who will help you?

You could find an answer by reading a self-help book.

Or find a religion, they'll tell you where to look.

Someone will tell you, money will make you happy.

While others will say, go get yourself a puppy.

You could make a wish and your problem will go away.

While others will preach read your horoscope today.

You could close your eyes and think it will disappear.

You look into astrology and think the answer is there.

You could certainly pretend your problem is gone.

Or use illegal drugs, no matter if it's right or wrong.

You can find someone who claims they can save you.

You could say you don't need help and believe it's true.

There is only one answer in this moment of truth.

His name is JESUS who can help you through.

After The Promise

 


The bible has promises more than I could memorize.

But that assurance diminished right before my eyes.

My life with CJ was like a fairy tale.

But calamity appeared that myth soon failed.

I saw her suffer and scream in agony.

Then hardship followed caused by her family.

The affliction soon followed what seemed like a curse.

Our hope was crushed, it seemed to get worse.

You made a choice that really affected me.

You allowed the evil turn our life into tragedy.

With a broken home and even broken hearts.

I saw all the malice and people torn apart.

Loved ones are gone without saying goodbye.

Tears keep flowing and watch someone die.

I had this dream we would have a happy ending.

But soon that faded when I saw her dying.

My smile is gone and no more laughter.

I still keep praying for the hereafter.

Dazed and tattered left me with more than fear.

It left me this question, what am I doing here?

SOMETHING SPECIAL

 


The day we first met, I knew you were the one.

The very moment our friendship had begun.

There was no looking back to our lonely days.

We had something special in so many ways.

With countless visits and calls on the phone.

Even a romantic dinner when we're at home.

We had something great, it's hard to describe.

It surely was incredible that nobody could deny.

We were blessed when God brought us together.

Our bond grew stronger and love for one another.

We enjoyed those times even for a daily routine.

For the two of us, it was our favorite scene.

We started off looking for companionship.

And we built it on a strong relationship.

We were filled with love and admiration.

We had the best times on every occasion.

Two Lonely People

 


We were two good people living in a fairy tale.

We enjoyed each other's company and our love set sail.

We were two lonely people headed down the wrong way.

But we found each other and enjoyed this very day.

We were two nice people who deserved better than this.

Not the pain and agony, it's something we won't miss.

We were two friendly people that loved one another.

Her own family deserted her but we still had each other.

We were two hurting people in an unexpected journey.

We encountered hatred in front of bad company.

We were two loving people that are back on trail.

We encountered ridicule but our love did prevail.

CJ

 


My heart aches every time I see.

The empty chair near the TV.

This sweet lady suddenly passed away.

Part of me died and I'm left astray.

I miss CJ, she was my best friend.

We had great times till the end.

I know God will call me home too.

Till we meet again, I LOVE YOU!

Battle For My Soul

 


I got worries and fears I play it in my head.

I let it built up when I should seek God instead.

When problems trouble me, I clam up inside.

I do what Adam and Eve did, I went to hide.

I'M BEGGING AND PLEADING FOR GOD TO ANSWER ME.

TO OPEN UP HEAVEN GATES SO I CAN SEE.

THAT THE FUTURE I LOOK FOR IS COMING SOON.

TO KEEP MY FAITH ON JESUS AND KEEP ME ATTUNE. 

I'm walking back and forth, face my problems alone.

There is no way I can do this, not even on my own.

My own spirit is shaking and my soul is lost.

My fragile and broken body is hurting the most.

I'M BEGGING AND PLEADING FOR GOD TO ANSWER ME.

TO OPEN UP HEAVEN GATES SO I CAN SEE.

THAT THE FUTURE I LOOK FOR IS COMING SOON.

TO KEEP MY FAITH ON JESUS AND KEEP ME ATTUNE.

The world around me tells me to do it myself.

Disregard everyone around except one self.

That is a crazy logic that certainly would blind me.

But I turn my attention to one who holds my destiny.

I'M BEGGING AND PLEADING FOR GOD TO ANSWER ME.

TO OPEN UP HEAVEN GATES SO I CAN SEE.

THAT THE FUTURE I LOOK FOR IS COMING SOON.

TO KEEP MY FAITH ON JESUS AND KEEP ME ATTUNE.
