  • Uplifted by Elizabeth Pridgen


    Uplifted
    (from the perspective of one of my loved ones)

    I used to look at life
    As nothing but pain and strife.
    Images of war and aggression scarred me inside and out.
    After leaving the battlefield, I forgot what life was all about.
    I thought I knew what it was all about until I met her.

    This isn’t a love story,
    This is just a tale of well-deserved glory
    About my great-niece, who somehow came into my life.

    Because of her, I’ve been uplifted,
    And the storm clouds have shifted.
    She’s turned my life upside down
    She makes me feel safe and sound
    Through her sarcastic ways
    That always bring me sunny days.
    I can say right now, that I’m uplifted.

    I may not be able to get up and walk often,
    But she makes me feel like I’m always hopping
    From place to place.
    She’ll always showcase
    Love for anybody, including me.

    I’m sure I don’t deserve it,
    But I know she treats everybody like their perfect.
    That’s something not a lot of people do in these different days.

    You should know that because of her, I’ve been uplifted.
    A new gear in my life has been shifted.
    She’s turned my life upside down
    She makes me feel safe and sound
    Through her sarcastic ways
    That always bring me sunny days.
    I can say right now, that I’m uplifted.

    I was all alone, starving for love.
    I was waiting for something Heaven-sent from above
    I thought it would never come. But while I was wasting away,
    She called me on a hot October day just to say

    Even though you’re in pain, I hope you to feel uplifted
    Cuz I’m praying for things to be different.
    She brought joy into my life
    And pulled me out of all the strife
    It was all because she wanted me to be uplifted.

    I’ve been uplifted,
    And the storm clouds have shifted.
    She’s turned my life upside down
    She makes me feel safe and sound
    Through her sarcastic ways
    That always bring me sunny days.
    I can say right now, that I’m uplifted.
