    King Madiba

    We Are Thinking Of You King Madiba, Nelson

    By Apostle James R Winfree Sr,
    I have been thinking of you king Nelson Mandela,
    And the way you made us feel.
    We understand you better now
    Cause your love and light we feel so real,
    Yes we always felt it Africa king,
    But it's never been this strong
    We cannot fall now because the Lord gave you a gift too us
    We got to hold on to your teaching of wisdom and your many smiles.
    When our eyes are on you
    It's so hard to look away.
    When its time for you too leave us
    We so badly wanted you to stay king Madiba.
    We want to tell you
    What's running through our head and hearts
    But for now I'll just keep it to myself instead with victory tears of joy,
    Cause I want nothing more for all of us to become more like you king Mandela
    The friendship that we created over the years from afar,
    We get it, And I don't want to be left
    Heartbroken and in tears.
    We want you to know how I feel king Nelson Mandela,
    And that we mean it, sometimes
    I just want to scream it, you real were real and you was God's loving gift too us.
    These words have been bottled up inside
    They explain the feelings I hide
    And the failed times I've tried.
    I don't know how much longer I will keep this in,
    Thinking of ways,
    Don't know where to begin.
    Deeply confused,
    Don't know what to do,
    I'll just leave it be, wait and see as I trust God,
    It will happen if it's meant to be in the Lord's plan.
    I have your words and teachings,
    But we really want your heart
    just as you forgave others, Christ has forgiving us,This is tearing down hate and unforgiveness in our World;
    We now know what to do as we keep our eyes on Christ
    One day we all will be with you with God our heavenly Father,
    May your God keep you happy and make you smile in His Kingdom.
    Though times we cant see you for a while,
    Its only cause my hearts desire can't be filled.
    It's a blessing to know you're with your Lord God
    When all we want is for all those who knew you trust and believe in Christ your Lord,
    You wanted to show us what this could be as you led the way;
    I do want to tell you king Nelson Mandela, Madiba
    I want you to just open up your eyes and see that we did listen and heard you.
    We want you to feel as rest now that you are in our heavenly Father's arms
    Jesus Christ is The Light of the World and the Nations.
