Stay

 

Give me life, give me breath
When faith is but a memory
All I am, all I was
Got up and walked away from me

Everyone is moving on
In the promises meant for me
Catching up and stumbling o’er
This journey laced in mystery

Here I stand
Beholden to
The one who forms
Beauty anew

Here I’m held
Beneath the truth
Lost letters of
Love pursued

Stay and whisper
Every moment
Every time I say
That you’re not here

Stay and make firm
Every intention
Hallowed promise
I made to you

Stay
Stay with me

Moments gone, questions buried
This burning fire lost in me
Gathering parts of tattered dreams
Remembering lonely victories

Here I go
This course with you
Letting go
This life accused

Freedom sings
A song endured
Through winter’s end
And life renewed
