You were there when I was a child
Running scared and terrified of fear.
You were there when I was abandoned
Feeling hopeless and anger still.
You were there when the walls fell down
And I was standing there in the rubble
(No idea of where to go from here).
You were there when I was alone
So unsure and yet unnerved.
You were there when I was forsaken
Feeling hurt and mostly plain unsure.
You were there when I was broken
Pieces laying there on the floor.
You were there when I had enough
Desperation craved without a word.
You were there when I finally turned
Facing and believing truth.
You were there when I finally accepted
Took You at Your Word.
But now my life is changing at a pace I can't ignore
And somewhere deep down inside I wonder,
Are You here? Do You know?
Do You see me in my pain?
In the times I cry? In the days I hurt?
Do You know my deepest fears? Those unspoken words?
And in this place that I don't like, I hear Hope
It whispers now and answers my doubts.
You are here, You do see, You do understand.
Ever when I can't see You
You're standing next to me.
Even when I can't feel You
You're holding me tenderly.
The truth of the matter is
Nothing separates me from You.
You were there, You are here
And You will be here always.
