It Took One Morning


It took one morning after yawning,
To have it dawn...
That I,
Am so glad to arrived...
To see,
That I could survive...
Through heartaches never planned,
To feel them end.
And...
To realize a happiness begin.

It took one morning after yawning,
To have it dawn...
That I,
Am so glad to arrived...
To see,
That I could survive...
A ridding of all lies I kept inside.
To now appreciate the living of my life.

No more tears from my eyes to drop,
No.
And...
No more pretending fears I've stopped.
Since,
All of its gone.
And I've become stronger.

No more tears from my eyes to drop,
No.
And...
No more pretending fears I've stopped.
Since,
All of its gone.
And I've become stronger.

It took one morning after yawning,
To have it dawn...
That I,
Am so glad to arrived...
To see,
That I could survive...
Through heartaches never planned,
To feel them end.
