In Sorrow
 

Ancient One,

Send light into this darkness

And hope into this despair.

Send music into this emptiness

And healing into this aching heart.

 

Air.

All I need is air.

A breath to give oxygen

To the anguish within.

A breath to give voice

To the howl in my heart.

A breath to set me free.

 

I am undone.

Crushed silent by sorrow.

Bereft by loneliness and loss.

Still yearning for healing.

Still yearning for love.

Still yearning for You.

 

Ancient One,

Send light into this darkness

And hope into this despair.

Send music into this emptiness

And healing into this aching heart.
