O let the winds dry away thou distraught tears,
Why can’t the sun stroke mine eternal pain?
Tired and weary, may God abolish mine fears-
I hear the distant thunder, I feel those drops of rain,
Open mine eyes, lead me unto that Heavenly light,
Within glory of mine days, thou moments chosen-
Needing to run but desiring a wings enhancing flight,
I search for peace, till mine rise unto Heaven,
Thou Spirit enters thy Kingdom, to praise and glorify –
Direct through wisdom, save mine soul’s pains abate,
Reach into eternity thy emotional revelation doth defy ,
Thy obsession not through pity but desires to equate-
That reservoir of feeling, walk in peace eternal glow,
Regain thou faith, now follow the leader let faith flow.
