Sometimes life… a song

She was out there on the playground

When she fell and bumped her knee

As she sat and started crying

I ran over there to see

And when she looked into my eyes

I shyly turned my head

Then bending down, like momma did, I kissed her knee and said

 

Sometimes things happen

And we just don’t know why

Sometimes we fall

But there is a plan for us to fly

I’ll pick you up this time

Because I know you’ll be okay

Sometimes we fall

And sometimes… Love shows us the way

 

She was out in the school parking lot

Trying to move her car

She backed right into a pickup truck

That wasn’t there before

And when I saw what happened

I ran over there to see

That same sweet girl was crying

So, I reached in and turned the key

 

Sometimes things happen

And we just don’t know why

Sometimes we fall

But there is a plan for us to fly

I’ll pick you up this time

Because I know you’ll be okay

Sometimes we fall

And sometimes… Love shows us the way

 

She graduated… from the university

And her whole life… was ahead for her to see

But what she didn’t know

And what would cut her to the core

Her momma died

She thought she couldn’t go on anymore

 

And at the funeral there was crying

And tears of pain dropped from her head

She screamed aloud to God

Why didn’t you just take me instead

And I got up and I went to her

Right there in that funeral home

And wrapped my arms around her tight

And said my precious love… you’re not alone…

 

Sometimes things happen

And we just don’t know why

Sometimes we fall

But there is a plan for us to fly

I’ll pick you up my love

Because I know you’ll be okay

Sometimes we fall

And sometimes… Love… shows… us… the way…

 

She was out there on the playground

When she fell and bumped her knee
