Here I Am Again


I wrote this poem, one thought cascading into the next, sometime this past month as a song. I hope you can relate with its prayer for hope, healing, and solace, in Christ.

Here I am again
wanting you to hold these pieces together
here with trembling hands
and a prayer that's now or never

cause I know
this road is long
and I know this is just a song
but my heart is breaking
right
now
so right now
I'm asking you to carry me...

Here I am again
somehow cut my life line and hanging
Here with trembling hands
not strong enough to save me

so please, oh
reach down and save me
reach out
your arms embrace me
and keep me there
till all my fears are gone...

Here I am again
not knowing to where I've wandered
here with trembling hands
horrified at all that I've squandered

And I don't know
where I went wrong
but I know that
this heartache is strong
so, Lord-God
I'm asking you to wash me clean....

cause I know
this road is long
and I know this is just a song
but my heart is breaking
right
now
so right now
I'm asking you to carry me...
