Gasping and grasping
“Stop”, I pleaded “Please”
As my heart raced and as I paced
I felt as though I needed to scream

Darkness filled my heart
And emptiness filled my soul
Why me? Why you?
Confusion covered all I've ever known

I've learnt to trust
I've learnt to pray
But for the first time
I didn't know what to say

Tears streamed down my cheeks
As I sat in complete fear
Will I live through this night?
“God, would you please appear”

Remorse grew in my spirit
But I didn't do anything wrong
Did I make a mistake along the way
To deserve this for so long?

The waves began to crash
While the wind blew
Darkness covered the sky
My mind began to dispute

Stars filled the night sky
As I looked above and prayed
They became an assurance
That God will always love and care
