Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Dry my eyes
 




I have loved ..

perhaps not wisely

but deeply ..

and to this day

it pains and haunts me ..

and I ...



cry


~~~~


I have befriended ..

yes naively

but devotedly ..

and to this day

it pains and haunts me ..

and I ...



ask why


~~~~


I have believed ..

maybe foolishly

but completely ..

and to this day

it pains and haunts me ..

for they ...



have lied


~~~~


and I cry ..

from words that cause
the heart to die


friends who abandon
or decry


promises made
and then denied


~~~~


and I cry ..

for a want of revenge
fills me ..


and I feel dirty ...



and I cry


~~~~


and I cry ..

Dear Lord .. help me ..

let these tears wash away
those ghosts ..

and too ..
this dirt that covers me ...


help me to forgive ..
so that I may ...


love ..

trust ..

and believe once more


~~~~


Please Lord ..

hear these words ..
that speak no lies ...


grant me that Grace ..
that dries these eyes ...


heal my soul ..
help me forgive ...


so I may live ..
as You'd have me live


~~~~

FTD challenge
using her phrase
'words that speak''

I thought you might
like the song my friend
to me ..
it's words do speak
