You Were Gone

Postby Wolfsong » Sun Jul 20, 2014 5:01 pm

I turned a corner and saw a face
Ghostly shadows of our yesterdays
I try so hard to forget you
You who left me alone by the ways
You passed on, you left me behind
I loved you, I breathed you in
I thought it would last forever
The void filled, my battles win

but you left me

I tried so hard to let you go
But my heart can never forget
The pain of seeing you again
The measure of joy is met

With trembling hands I reach for you
You smile and turn away
I cry out but you walk from me
My grasp meets nothing and I sway
My heart contracts, my eyes grow wide
My hand retreats and I start to cry
I should have known, too good to be true
You vanish as you'd never been

You were gone
"Show me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day." Psalm 25:4-5

"Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.
Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.
Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles." Psalm 25: 16-22
