Aren't You Glad They Made It? (Louis Toliver Jr-Lafayette, LA)


He brushed through his curly, silky hair
He leaned on his inviting, broad shoulder

He remembered where they had been
He remembered all their painful struggles

He reminded him of how far they come
He reminded him of how far down they were

He professed at one time he was his heroin
He professed at one time he was his meth

“Aren’t you glad we made it?” he said to him
“Did you ever lose faith?” he replied to him

“I knew we’d fight to the top,” he smiled
“I knew we’d beat our obstacles,” he grinned

These two men seemed as if they were one
What a great feeling and I’m glad they made it

Moving Forward (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Step by step, I step     I hear the angels sing    Hope, today, they bring  Flying up with pep  I become Heaven's rep    Riding along God's wing
Moving forward can be hard     Struggling through today      Living life is not all play The fortune teller draws a card It warns that Fate has no guard     Never let pain get in your way
Flying high with my life      I am moving, so I'm living     Heart and heart, I keep giving I will one day meet my afterlife  Everyone's past contains strife       Let my future be thanksgiving
When the steps run out      I will just fly and fly and fly      I leave the past with a goodbye Up on God's wing, I won't pout  Going to heaven, I do not doubt     In hell, I was just a passerby 
Moving forward, strength will build     Letting go is the hardest part     Vitality comes from being smart Trust in those that are strong-willed Our honest actions will be fulfilled      I step, I sing to you, I fly, I depart
