Nothing Without You…

Without you I am nothing
I would be nothing
I would know no hope
There is no hope
There is no peace
I can’t love
I can’t give
I can’t choose what is right
Without You

Without You, The darkness becomes the light
The absence of light is illuminated for closed eyes to see
Eyes shut, unaware they even need to be opened
Plagued by enduring, and debilitating deceit

I once believed Your light, against my darkness,
Would blind my veiled eyes if introduced
I believed the lie that You would reject me
So I attempted to hide my shameful nakedness from You

I feared You would never love one such as I
That there was no place for me in Your arms
It hurt to breathe the same air that sustained Your children
Ceaseless tears, unwanted heartbeats, life unwillingly prolonged

But Your light did not blind my eyes upon opening
Although the radiance exceeded pure glory defined
You saw my nakedness, but knew my heart
And no element of rejection did I find
Only love, compassion, rejoicing over my return
One tiny grain of sand among the multitudes
I didn’t know it at the time; I could not consider it possible
But all along I was Your child, and my return You foreknew

So I’ll express endless gratitude to You my loving Father
Thank You for refusing to let me go
Thank You for choosing to walk with me upon my journey
Without You I am nothing, this I know
