My Illness

My Illness

I’m wrapped up in my illness

I feel the suffering of my Isolation
I feel the suffering of my Loneliness
I feel the suffering of my Longing
I feel the suffering of my Nothingness
I feel the suffering of my Empty heart
I feel the suffering of my Soul
I feel the suffering of my Seasons

I’m so wrapped up in these feelings
I stand shivering
In the space that’s come between us Lord
Still I hear Your voice
Saying the space is just a feeling
You are there at my side
We are together in these moments
My soul is never alone
You ask me to let You fill this heart
You ask me to let You be my all
Then is illness will fade in the light
The space will be no more
Just a feeling in my memory
As I hold to You so tightly

The Bridge

The Bridge

It was me who ran away
And it was me who found themselves lost
Call me home
I long for your comfort
Please call me home

Yet the more I try to make my way home
The more I seem to get lost

It was me that closed the pages
And it was me that turned dry eyes to seas of pain
Call me home
I long for your arms
Please call me home

It was me who split this world in two
And it was me who created the chasm between us

But I’ll build the bridge with all I have
If you will meet me upon it

I dream of a day
We cross together the bridge I make
I pray for a day we are found as one
Upon this bridge of broken souls

Maybe I am finally ready
To give you the best of who I am
