If I'd Take My Turn
© 9/2006 Jeffrey C. Ashbaker

Can you still see me
Are you still there
Do you still need me
Do you still care

I still wonder if I'll ever get it right
I gather up my confidence like the shadows cast their light
You know sometimes I gotta to hold on tight

If I could feel you
Perhaps I'd learn
That I would heal too
If I'd take my turn

I turn to face the truth that guides me through this life
Embrace the journey though the end is out of sight
Let go, this time I just might get it right

If you can hear me
Make it clear to me somehow
That all I have is here and now

My mind it'll tease me
It goes where I've been
It shouts from the outside
While my heart cries from within

And I will change, exchange indifference for delight
Leave the past behind me, and the future out of sight
You know what's left just might turn out right
