My Only Hope





The waters are deep...
They surround me
The darkness has fallen
And night seems unending
Each breath is a struggle
My feet don't touch the earth
My body grows weary
With the fight to stay afloat
Tears are ever present in my eyes
Pain sears my heart
But I am not alone
God is with me
He is the only reason I have not already sunk
My own strength faded long ago
My own will wearied by the last storm
God is my only hope
His love pushes me to carry on
His rest awaits me
His peace tugs on my heart strings
It is Him, not me
His spirit living inside of me
