LYRICAL GEM NO.10 – For My Readers…

To My Wonderful Readers ~

With the addition today of Mr. Blumetti this morning, I am now officially at 200 readers.  Accordingly, I want to take a moment to officially thank every one of you…

All my life, there is nothing I’ve loved doing more than writing.  I love writing, it is my lifeline.  Part of the reason I love it so is because I have been through some dark times in my life, and as is my writing heavy at times, so too is my heart.  In my lifetime, I have often been treated a burden for carrying this weight.  Many people have come into my life during my brighter days, and swiftly made their exit upon return of this darkness.  So I eventually began to pour myself into writing, learning to express my emotion on paper, hoping one day it would matter.

Given such circumstances, it was a huge feat to overcome the fear of sharing my writing with others, knowing full well that many would run.  So while I’ve dreamed of 10,000 readers, in reality I never knew I’d have more than a few, let alone all of you.  For that reason, I just wanted to let you each know what it means to me that you would not just read, but also sign up for more.  You make the meaning for me, you round out the circle and make the idea complete.  Thank you, for sticking around.  It means more to me than I can sufficiently express at the present moment, but I will shortly find a way.  In the meantime, here’s Lyrical Gem No.10, John Hiatt, “Have a Little Faith in Me” ~

When the road gets dark

And you can no longer see

Let my love throw a spark

And have a little faith in me

~

When the tears you cry

Are all you can believe

Give these loving arms a try baby

Have a little faith in me

~

And have a little faith in me

And have a little faith in me

And have a little faith in me

And have a little faith in me

~

And when your secret heart

It cannot speak so easily

Come here darlin’, from a whisper start

To have a little faith in me

~

When your back’s against the wall

Just turn around and you, you will see

I will catch you, I’m gonna catch your fall baby

Just have a little faith in me

~

And have a little faith in me

And have a little faith in me

And have a little faith in me

And have a little faith in me

~

‘Cause I’ve been loving you

For such a long time girl

Expecting nothing in return

Just for you to have a little faith in me

~

You see time, time is our friend

‘Cause for us there is no end

And all you gotta do

Is have a little faith in me

~

I said-a I will hold you up

I’m gonna hold you up

Your love, it gives me strength enough

So have a little faith in me

~

Hey hey, all I want you to do for me girl

All you gotta do is just-a little, I said-a

Please, please, please my baby

Just have a little faith in me
