Lying oh so quietly,
During the darkest night,
There was not a sound around me,
Nor even a ray of light.
I wish that I could fall asleep,
But it always took so long,
Because I was forever thinking,
Of things that seemed so wrong.
I felt the tears roll down my face,
Then taste their salty brine,
And no matter how I tried to,
I could not stop those tears of mine.
The only times that I felt happy,
When I found some other place to be,
And there was no one else around,
The only one was me.
There was something so very wrong,
About the way that I did live,
And so many times I cried to my Lord,
How many times must I forgive?
I guess that is what carried me,
Throughout those tortuous times,
Was the faith that I did have,
In that Lord of mine.
For no matter what was said to me,
Or how it was explained,
I knew each time it happened,
I’d once again feel that dreaded pain.
That pain did always tell me,
They were things I could not condone,
For when it was all over,
I’d again be left alone.
Alone lying in the darkness,
Alone with all my fears,
Alone with none to comfort me,
Alone with silent tears.
But then I would recall,
I’d have my Lord beside,
So although I may feel alone,
I’d have Him with me on this ride.
That might not change a lot of things,
For I still have my fears,
But I do know He gives me strength,
While I shed silent tears
