In This Life 1998 (Right Click To Stop Midi)

I'll choose to remember

Iíll choose to remember the good days weíve had,
And not just focus on the days that were bad.
Iíll choose to remember her warm gentle smile,
Which I have not seen for quite a long while.
Iíll choose to remember her strong tender arms,
That I knew would always keep me from harm.
Thatís not to say my childhood was free,
From the trials of life that shape what weíll be.
Life isnít perfect, and itís not always fair.
But I know I was loved and I saw that they cared.
No, Iím not ignoring the bad that I see.
And sometimes I wonder if her fate awaits me.
But thatís out of my hands, thereís no use to stew.
Thereíre far more important things that I need to do.
Mom needs my care, the best I can give.
Iíll commit unto God, the life that I live.
Iíll choose to remember the good days weíve had,
And not just focus on the days that were bad.
