When the morning came...

I passed mustered my pity from my face...

I sought out your tenderness, but there wasn't a trace...

I felt alone and rescinded...

If you love me then โ€œwhy did you leave?โ€

You're all so powerful but โ€œHow could you let me make this of me?โ€

I feel ashamed to smile...

I regret allotting to the temptation of Allowing the realization of imperfections to diminish my character.

Tell me, โ€œHow do you stand in the light?โ€

โ€œHow do you know what is right?โ€

I'm awake in the morning, but it's still hard to sleep at twilight.

I pray, but I don't know if you can hear me...

I always believe so I must take my chances...

When the lights go out and I'm afraid of the Dark, โ€œWill you use your light to guide me?โ€

I'm just Lost and, Digging through for your Everlasting Love โค๏ธ To Find Meโ€ฆ
