Often life finds me lost

Lost in a sea of regrets and pain

Over come by waves of grief 

and shame.


Waves that even rip my very soul

Pushing me below the surface

So far under I cannot see relief


Lost in massive pains of fear

That fill my heart with deep despair

Leaving me breathless and broken


In my mind, past relief or repair

I sink further, deeper into darkness

Consumed with doubt and brokenness


As I sink further down

The weight and frustrations

Cloud my mind and heart and sight


Leaving me alone and frightened

Feeling all is lost and gone

No hope for rescue or even light


The very bottom draws so close

I feel its solidness and endless mass

I yearn to sink even further


Perhaps in the depth

I can hide and be forgotten

Left alone to soak in misery


That quite dark place

Where no one comes 

To disturb my aloneness 


Will I be rescued or sink deeper

Will someone care or notice

That I am alone, lost, past feeling


Is this journey meant to be

For me or anyone

A deep dark lonely endless sea


And yet

There is a glimmer

So very small


That breaks even

The darkest parts

And the deepest depths


A light

That penetrates 



It brings peace 

Where hope is lost

And darkness reigns


And starts the assent 


Almost without notice


Up up up

Out of the darkness

Slowly ever slowly


Light and breathe

Are restored

With added strength 


That can only come 

From the light

That destroys all darkness


His light and love

His grace and mercy 

Lift me beyond what I cannot endure alone


I am lifted 

Once again 

To the calm surface


The waves that raged

The depths so dark and deep

Are now forgotten


As He 

With hands of others 

Lifts me up


And once again  

I see the light

And Feel the peace


And Rejoice

That I am not alone
