poem about being strengthened

As I slip my hand into yours

A comfort enfolds me

I seem to find an inner peace

Your warm embrace it holds me

My scream of desperation fades into a whisper

I feel my heart expand I see forever somehow closer

You promise and I know I can put my faith to test

For you I can go further

For with you I'm truly blessed

Help me to keep my inner peace I know I can do better

Bless me with your spirit and I know I can try harder-

to do the things that please you

To tread the paths that you lay down

You lead me to a stronghold within myself

I find strength with each new hour

You make me strong on all sides

You build me a secured tower

When I cry out in the darkness you set a light at my feet

You make me tread a whole new path

You've made me feel I can be complete

I feel the threads of your fingertips at work in my life

I see the glow of serenity on a lonely dark night

You've carried me so far , now it ismy turn to stand

to show I'm strong

The way you've shown the rest is up to me

You gave your son to rescue me

for that I am ever thankful

Your foundations have been laid

Now my search begins with a shiny new key....
