I Have

Updated on October 9, 2017

Israel is a fan of many types of music and loves to write, not in any particular order and does them usually at the same time.

I have held new life in my hands,

Seen loved ones pass away before my very eyes,

Had brothers lost on the battlefield,

Been to children’s funerals,

I have broken hearts into pieces,

Had my heart broken into pieces more than once,

Celebrated many years on this planet but feel as if I am going on 90,

A weary old soul,

I have a tired heart,

A tired mind,

A tired soul,

No more energy,

I have survived the battlefields,

Survived the heartaches,

Survived the injuries to my soul,

Survived for reasons unknown,


I have loved ones who still care about me,

Loved ones I still care about,

Time left on this Earth,

A family to be there for,

I have friends that enjoy my company,

Many blessings,

To keep going,

A life to live…
