The Cave

The Cave

I’m lost tonight
Inside the night of my day
I’m running far
From where I’m called

On tired feet I run today
To a place no one will come
Into a world I create myself
To hold a prisoner in his shame

Because I’m digging holes
To bury my soul
In the darkest of nights
Below the deepest of shadows

My winters have all come at once
Every step so cold
With these bare feet
Torn within the ice

Times I wish the courage of the steel
Had cut deep on that darkest day
I could be sleeping now
And this pain turn to dust and disappear

Hidden in my cave
A tattered web of worn shadows
In the cracks there is a light
Calling me to reach out

A veil of shadows is torn
And there I see His face
He calls me out once again
Yet I just cower lost and afraid

My hands they shake
They tremble as I reach
I want to go touch the light
It’s warmth I feel upon my heart

Heaven’s light shines beyond my veil
In His face I see my hope
Yet I need someone to come to me
And dance with me in heaven’s glow

There’s hope tonight
In the light that dissolves the veil
It holds my hand as I stand
Maybe soon we’ll have this dance
