Skin stained from the tears
My eyes swollen with sorrow
Alone and abandoned
Left by the one who was supposed to stay
Yet I thank you

Screams echo throughout
Walls shake and doors slam
My heart races and screams
Swallowed by the anger that surrounds
Yet I thank you

The clouds cover the sky
Rain pounds down on me
Relentless and endlessly gray
My skin frozen at the touch
Yet I thank you

Seemingly broken by my touch
The world falls at my feet
My hands lifted up high
That’s all I can think to do
No mess is too big
There’s always a rainbow after a storm
You carried me through it all
And for this Lord I thank you
