Just The Way You Are
By Andrew Hobbs
'JUST THE WAY YOU ARE'
Glory be, at last i'm me
the one i said i'd always be,
no pale reflection fading fast
i am here and back to last,
to never disappear again
for here i am, a soul of Zen,
i did what i thought i'd always do
i opened doors and walked on through.
Hallelujah, what a joy
to meet a lovely little boy,
a sweetheart with a gentle smile
one who trekked for many miles,
with broken sandals on his feet
but a spirit way above defeat,
he's just so brave, the bravest one
now it's time for us to climb the rungs.
Blessed be, what a thrill to see
potential oozing out of me,
i'm floating out there, floating high
a completed sun in a cloudless sky,
and i know my wings won't ever melt
that i'll never wear a captive belt,
because i'm now in charge of me
i'm standing in my light and free.
Hurrah! Hurrah! I see a star
glowing near and shining far,
it's out there dancing with the moon
to a really well-known lover's tune,
one so many people know
it's a gorgeous song that truly flows,
i'm sat here singing in my car
"I love you just the way you are."
