Only You see my cry
Yet in Your creation I have greed..
But only You can help me try
To fill my heart with peace
To fill this void with love
I turn away and run from You
Yet there is no refuge from You except in You
In temporary joy I float…
I hold on to it and hold it tight
But it just leaves me alone
If I could, I should chose to let go
Of the poison in my drink
Of the attachment I linger in
So insignificant I seem..
Perhaps my aim was mistaken
Perhaps I searched in the wrong places
Yet, too long it took me to see it.
I crushed the flower You gifted me
Yet, still I live with its essence in my hands
By the promise You made was true
I wander around, I pray desperately
In shattered hope of getting back to You
Yet, still..my heart talks to me,
“A little effort goes a long way”
It stirs some hope in me
Peaceful is my hope
In painful peace I bleed
And only You see me cry
All I had to do was try..
