Why this Song?

Because if it saves one soul from doing something harmful to anyone, including them self because of their hurt and pain…then it is worth it. Too many people give up and leave this world too early to turn off the pain.. thinking there is not hope. The pain will “never” end.. there will be no happiness ever.. again.   I am here to share my testimony to say… there is hope in Jesus.

Everyone has their own cross to bear and the way we carry it is as unique as each one of us.  For me… at “the time” I originally wrote the song I had a multitude of emotions flowing around in me and my spirit was torn, tattered and I really did not love life for a short period of time.  I was fighting the bad Wolf in me… Everyone has their own stories of a childhood so I will not bore you with the details because I tried that with a couple of people that I loved… I did not get compassion as a kind emotion returned…but instead a rejection and chastening.  In the end… they are gone out of my life…by their choice.  Thus the name “Abandoned.” This song has a multitude of significance to those that can endure my off pitch and pray to the meaning of the spirit for it’s life saving message to those who are in pain.  To those who have been there you will get it! To those who have not the capacity to understand… you are either Blessed or just have not arrived at that event in life of morn the lost of those closest to you. You will have your day like it or not. But do hold on to hope…  that is the message.

Why Share this?

This song is written from a “Man’s” prospective of having lost his wife and his children.  A husband, Mr. Mom to divorcee and empty nester…  There were dark days… and the fellowship of brothers and sisters, the constant prayer and the forgivness…saved me. Thank you Jesus.  I have also imagined that for a woman the loss of their spouse and children could have the same if not more of a tragic end.  I can understand why people do not want to life the life of sorrow, emptiness and pain…  I’ve look at that door, I’ve seen that room… so for those of you who “get” the meaning of this song pay attention to the songs ending…endure brothers and sisters. Endure…

A Sharing of the Lyrics connections

Ok… for those of you that know me.. My grammer is not so good and I often have typos as my mind swells with emotions so I ask for your forgiveness in advance. It goes like this… I never envisioned myself as a Father, Husband or Mr. Mom.  It was the furthest thing from my mind until 1990 at the age of…well I was born 09-08-1956…you do the math.  When my eldest daughter was born… Sterlyng Zena…my Whole World changed.  I enjoyed 18 years of family life… and it all came to an end.  Not something I dealt with very well. When the youngest finally left home five years ago…the emptiness of the nest was deafening.  Darkness and other Bad Wolf things set in… Finally one day I met a nice young woman that brought sunshine into my life…  Hope… was alive but I had not dealt with my Bad Wolf and she took her love away.  I was in a really dark and hurting place. I prayed to God continually and bought a guitar instead of “prowling” the night clubs looking for companionship.  A little wine and a few chords later and what came out were the lyrics of the song Abandoned. Ok…so for the lyrics meanings… I have to get back to you on the next post. Love you all… Kind regards, Lone Wolf
