YOU AND ME

Photographs
and memories —
all that’s left
of you and me,
together.

I DIDN’T CALL YOU

I didn’t call you last night.
You wondered if I’d ever.
Maybe I should starting now —
It’s better late than never!

PRAISE

PRAISE

I’ve never heard you
utter a phrase —
you never had to.
The kiss that you blew
meant all the praise.

JESUS

JESUS

Judy Garland, Judy Garland,
the one, the only, till the end.

Now, if you’re young
and wondering who this might be
she’s the god I once admired
far greater than the real God.

To me a photograph of Judy
was like The Bible,
or Jesus Christ dying on the cross.
It made me feel happy,
and I just couldn’t get enough of her.

Oh, what was I thinking?
All I cared about then
was Judy Garland this
Judy Garland that.

And my bedroom is a testament
to how obsessed I was over her,
and how I replaced a non-sinner
for a real sinner.

And yes, my friend, 
Judy Garland was a sinner.
How do I know that?
‘Cause everyone on Earth is a sinner.
Nobody is perfect.

Now you might ask, is that an excuse
as to why I chose Judy over Jesus?
Absolutely not!
But I’m sure glad I changed my mind.
Glory to God, Hallelujah!

I’ve learned a lot since I made that decision.
After all, there’s no other way
you’ll find yourself over that rainbow
unless you’ve got Jesus.
That’s right, Jesus!

He is the way,
He is the truth,
and He is the life.
And Jesus died so we can all live.

Who’s your Lord?
Make that Jesus.
That’s right, Jesus!
Yes!
