Giving It

Gave in one final time.

Turning my back on all I’ve ever been,

choosing you,

choosing life.

Walking away from sickness and pain

and I don’t feel the same.


Take away my mind.

Take away me.

Break the chains of my sorrow,

setting me free.


From time to time

I have waded deeper into death,

now I know whose breath is in me.

Here I go – to and fro,

all alive and all aglow.

In the darkness I see you

and you see me.


Giving up hiding – giving up dying.

Freeing my being and dreaming of flying.

His love is sustaining,

His mercy is pure

and I’m no longer fading

away in the blur.
