One Wish

This was one of the first songs I ever wrote. I originally wrote it with two very different people in mind. Each of them had touched me in very deep ways and I didn’t know how to tell them what was in my heart. As I sat down at the piano, I thought, “If I could only have one wish for this person right now, what would it be?” The words and music began to flow almost immediately. The last line of the chorus says, “God sent you because He knew I would not run.” That line is what still sticks with me to this day. I always seemed like an open book to those around me but there were very few who truly knew me. Like most everyone else, there were always parts of myself I kept hidden or didn’t understand and when those things began to be revealed in a relationship, I immediately recoiled and made sure they didn’t show. Then God, in His infinite wisdom, brought these two folks into my world, in very different roles, to help me open those closed doors of my heart. I am forever grateful.

  1. Many of us are very careful about who we choose to let in our lives. So we take our time. And when we find those people who don’t make us want to run, we know that they are for keeps. Very beautiful
