Sweet Grace

by mkvecchitto

grace

It was personal, that decision I made

to honor the day my angel grew wings

It was personal, your choice to throw shade

Things you don’t know could be just about anything

What you see isn’t always what you get

Easy to judge when a world is so small

A ray of hope, a light in my darkened room

that tiny heartbeat fluttering, a drumbeat in a fragile womb

And the day I lost her gave way to gloom, the gloom

My sweet Grace slipped away

It was personal, that decision I made

An artist’s ink on my quivering skin

It was personal, those judgements you made

Things you implied with a jerk of your chin

A ray of hope, a light in my darkened room

that tiny heartbeat fluttering, a drumbeat in a fragile womb

And the day I lost her gave way to gloom, the gloom

My sweet Grace slipped away

It was personal, that decision I made

to honor the day my angel grew wings

It was personal, your choice to throw shade

Things you don’t know could be just about anything

Thankful I found grace

Sustains me when I walk in your superficial place

She’s a memory I won’t allow you to deface

A ray of hope, a light in my darkened room

that tiny heartbeat fluttering, a drumbeat in a fragile womb

And the day I lost her gave way to gloom, the gloom

My sweet Grace slipped away

Thankful I found grace

Sustains me when I walk in your superficial place

Gratitude lives in Grace
