"I know that you're broken..."

You told me in the silence of the day

As I clutched onto my pillow and wept

"...but you bring these things upon yourself

To be free, you must live your life for Me."

 

My skin burns as these salty tears

Fall from my eyes down my cut cheeks

Into the wounds they trickle

Into my heart they stagnate.

 

"Don't close your eyes, don't close your heart..."

You begged my tired being

"...just hold my hand it'll be alright."

To be honest Lord, I cannot see.

I have always hoped

I have always dreamed

Is that all it will ever be?

 

"Tired child, do not give up but come closer to me

Wrap your arms around your faith, come closer to me.

Repair your heart, rebuild your dreams, be all you can be

And though lost and confused, tired and broken

Come closer to me."
