    You ever had one of those times
    when it's just you and the Lord?
    everyone who says they'll be there, can't
    or won't...And you can't afford
    to go crazy, because you are supposed
    to be dependable, a rock
    But now, you are caught, right between
    that rock and a hard place, it's on lock
    down, in fact, you can't break free
    And you don't know if you're even going to
    make it through the night,
    because, whew, it looks bleak,
    not a favorable end in sight
    not a human ear to hear you speak,
    to comfort, to console, or just listen
    cause the future is looking mighty sad
    So, God, here we are again, just me and you
    Help me Jesus, I do not know what I'm going to do
    But pray........

    been there more often than I'd
    care to admit
    friends and people care
    but sometimes not enough to
    get closer
    they love from a distance
    you're there with only Spirit
    who can't hold you in the physical
    so you take the mental and forge ahead
    one step at a time
    into darkness
    faith only a dim light
    your praying voice is the only sound you hear
    lift me up, you keep asking
    and eventually
    slowly
    the dawn breaks
    Spirit says
    have patience and I
    will never let you down

    I've been in this place a lot lately...
    and when I think about it...
    I enjoy his company more,
    because I know that he will
    give me rest...and he doesn't
    just listen...but he solves my
    problems...

    I can so relate...so relate

    Much love to you for this peace!

    It would be you who flows in a way that captures what I feel. Thank you so much for that sis, truly.
    Happy to know that this piece was food for your soul, it's just what I was feeling, thank you much.
    Sage, I appreciate you, and also knowing that this piece brought you some peace. I guess we never know what our words can do. Thank you sista.

    Prayer is indeed powerful and sometimes even the strongest ones need someone to lean on. Very nice Watz.
