As I lay in despair
At the bottom of the stairs
It has taken me years to
Ascend the summit
Only to fall to the abyss...
"Why?", I cry out to you
As I lay weeping and lost
Cursing life and bewildered
"It's not fair" , what do I need to learn
That you have struck such sorrow upon me...
Surrendering, no more will to fight
Hope has certainly taken flight
Then from a distance I look upon
A light so bright I lose my breathe
Clarity shining when nothing was left...
You have emptied me to begin anew
I really was not through
A rebirth given to climb again
A different direction lifting me
Carrying my burdens with so much ease...
All this time I thought you had left
You simply stopped me to change my course
I understand, I surrender now
Nothing to fear or should my tears fall
A new vessel created with faith...
I heard your voice with clarity
Never to be lost again, just let it be
You will always hold me in your arms
Protect me from unknown harm
Cradled safely in your peace...
When all hope had ceased to be
You came down to rescue me
Now I walk in perfect peace
Letting nothing trouble me
Thank you for loving me...
