I was here

I want to leave my footprints on the sands of time
Know there was something that, something that I left behind
When I leave this world, I’ll leave no regrets
Leave something to remember, so they won’t forget

I was here, I lived, I loved, I was here
I did, I’ve done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark, so everyone will know, I was here

I wanna say I lived each day, until I died
And know that I’ve been something in, somebody’s life
The hearts I have touched
Will be the proof that I leave
That I made a difference
And this world will see

I was here, I lived, I loved, I was here
I did, I’ve done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here, I lived, I loved, I was here
I did, I’ve done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know, I was here

I just want them to know
That I gave my all, did my best
Brought someone some happiness
Left this world a little better just because, I was here

I was here, I lived, I loved, I was here
I did, I’ve done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here, I lived, I loved, I was here
I did, I’ve done
I was here, I lived, I loved, I was here
I did, I’ve done, I was here

Watch the video to see Beyoncé sing I was here back in 2012 at the World Humanitarian Day.  It always makes me cry… usually around the third chorus (which is highlighted above). Will it make you cry too? 

We are all human. We all want to be seen. We all want to be heard. We all want to matter. We all want to be loved. We all want to have someone to love. We all need a safe home, a warm bed, good food, clean water and someone to help us when we are lost, frightened or lonely.

We all want something to believe in. Something to give us hope. Watching this video gives me hope…
