My light is taken over and the darkness covers all.
Swollen clouds are hovering as the drops begin to fall.
Dismal skies bring somber eyes and the fullness brings the rain
As sorrows, through a hazy view, stream down my window pane.
The rhythm of my heartbeat meets my heavy soul’s release.
A silent storm is raging and it’s pain begins to feast.
Thunder is my anger and it’s lightning strikes my mind.
A binding wind is blowing cold for I’ve failed the test of time.
Yet, Your canopy extends to me against an air so bleak.
Your branches touch my weary soul and nudge me on to seek.
In a clearing, I see shelter with a Light that shines within.
Amidst the pour, You’re the open door that forgives me of my sin.
