Eternity

I am not a songwriter but I did attempt to write a song once, while I attended Azusa Pacific University as a transfer student back in 2001. The lyrics speak of a fellow transfer student who I became close friends with during the last few months of her life before a fatal car accident. (Believe it or not, I actually sang and played this song on my guitar in APU at Upper Turner Campus Center for her memorial service.)

I caught you just yesterday

Praying and smiling at heaven.

I saw you just yesterday

Laughing and talking with your friends. . . .

And the way you lived your life – inspires me.

Oh, why did it have to be?

Now even God can see

How sweet and silly you can be.

And the way you lived your life – inspires me.

Oh, why did it have to be?

Now even God can see

How fesity and bossy you can be.

And the way you lived your life – inspires me.

Oh, why did it have to be?

Now even I can see

You’ll be loved for eternity.

You’ll be loved for eternity. 

You’ll be loved . . . for eternity.
