    Hey fam...Been having a bad case of Writers' Block.....


    Lifting up mine eyes unto the hills
    I feel the presence of your glory
    Helping me
    Comforting me
    Healing me
    When everyone else has left
    You are still here for me
    Through heartaches and pains
    You keep me in the hollow of your hand
    Wiping away my tears
    I pray for others
    Yet who prays for me?
    When I’m in need
    Who can I call?
    When I need a word
    Who is there for me?
    Sometimes I get tired of being strong
    Sometimes I just want to cry
    But yet you give me the strength to go on
    No one can see just how afraid I am
    No one can see how the loneliness tries to creep in
    To swallow me in its depths of torment
    Yet I know your love is ever present and you are always there
    To deliver me from all my fears
    This is why I lift up mine eyes
    For I know that soon the sun will rise
    Morning will come
    The night shall be over
    And the weeping shall be no more.
