Love Me

Keep me honest when I become a liar,
bring me low when arrogance overtakes who I am,
save me from my selfish wants and desires,
and love me whenever you feel you can.

Who are we,
and how great is this life,
that we should make it only our own?
Isn’t selflessness a part of growth?

Are we looking for what we want
instead of the things we need?
If we don’t give,
can we expect to receive?

If we keep our eyes closed,
will we ever see?
If we all we do is dream,
are we constantly asleep?

If we pretend a problem doesn’t exist,
will it eventually go away?
If we don’t try to change the world,
will it forever stay the same?

If I continue asking questions,
is it answers I’ll obtain?
Or will the something I find
make me realize I’ve searched in vain?

Final Hour

Do you recall the warmer days?
Do you remember the sun shining through the trees?
Back then things were simpler,
and all we had to do was breathe.

Sometimes it would be nice to return
and relive those moments of bliss.
I still look back with fondness
at the memory of our very first kiss.

I’m not sure what you’d call us now,
but we’re nothing close to lovers.
It seems we have a relationship that’s
more like a sister and brother.

I’m sorry to see you suffering like this.
If I could I would take your pain.
But since it doesn’t work that way,
I guess the best I can do is just stay.

You still look so beautiful,
despite the battle you’ve been through.
You’ve put up a courageous fight,
and have done more than I could ever hope to.

I’ll tightly hold your hand in mine.
Together we’ll approach the final hour.
Your gentle breathing is gradually fading.
May God be with you, my lovely flower.

The clock’s ticking makes me anxious.
I’m quickly running out of time.
Chased by things that others can’t see,
I’m a prisoner trapped inside my mind.

They run from me with fear in their eyes.
I can feel the tension in the air.
I’m the one most people despise.
I’m the heartless beast who doesn’t care.

Very few accept me,
while many don’t want to give me a thought.
I’m seldom prepared for,
and I’m almost never sought.

I’m only there for the sad moments
and the times that are rough.
I suppose I’m a relief to some,
yet those rare cases aren’t enough.

I don’t wish to be alive,
adding fuel to the fire,
but I have no choice,
for I am what I desire.

Nothing More

Give us eyes to see
and ears to hear.
Grant us peace of mind
and take away our fear.

Supply us with enthusiasm
for each new day.
When witnessing to others,
teach us the right words to say.

Help us to treat everyone with love
so the world will realize Your glory.
Let grace pour down from up above.
Guide us in telling Your great story.

Soften hearts so they might receive
this wonderful gift You’re offering.

Savior, You redeemed every last one of us.
You died so we could have forgiveness.

We are Yours. Do with us what You will.
I pray that with Your Spirit we’d be filled.

Now we enter in to the house of the Lord.
Jesus is all one needs, and nothing more.

This morning there isn’t a cloud to be seen.
The sky is a sheet of pure blue.
The sun is bright and the day is warm
as I wake up next to you.

You’re still asleep, and I can almost make out
the things you’re whispering under your breath.
I think about the places we’ve been,
and I can’t help but feel very blessed.

It’s nice not having to worry.
I know my heart is in good hands.
I’ve had an optimistic notion about you
ever since we became close friends.

There was something different
about the way you were speaking,
as though you were searching for more,
trying to find a deeper meaning.

Not like all the others,
who talked but didn’t have much to say.
You’re the one who left an impression
and made me want to stay.

From the moment I realized who you were,
I couldn’t keep you out of my thoughts.
A woman as special as you is a rarity,
and so for your affection I fought.

Regardless of the trials that arise,
we’ll always prevail and move on.
When people said we didn’t make sense,
we kept walking and assumed they were wrong.

We’ll be okay, you and I, for our love is stronger
than this feeble world in which we live,
where relationships crumble as quickly as they start,
and everyone takes but doesn’t want to give.

We’re as thick as thieves,
we’re two halves of a whole,
and every other cliché that comes to mind.
I was lucky to even become a part of your life,
and I still can’t believe you’re mine.
