Somber Days

Breath Blew right out of me

Like wind across a window ledge

My old forgotten ways

Came rushing back on me

The world that held no interest

Gave way to somber days

So many somber days I felt so all alone

(In my suffering I was home)

So many somber days I was so unaware

Of almost anything but my suffering

How can our sight become so severely limited

We cannot see beyond the step we’re

About to take, the love that we did not make

The years so swiftly gone

So many somber days I felt so all alone

(In my suffering I was home)

So many somber days I was so unaware

Of almost anything but my suffering

And I felt unsure under a winter sky

And I would waste away

Coldest sun, seemed so far away

Who can heal a heart that’s made of clay?

If you’re feeling down today

If you’re dreading your next breath

Your hurt down to the bone

There is someone here with us

God is close as your next breath

He won’t leave you alone

Through your somber days when you feel all alone

(All your suffering he has known)

Through your somber days

Whem you feel like no one cares

(Touch your memory; he is there)

Through these somber days…

All these somber days

(He will walk with you all the way)

No matter how it hurts please stay here

One more day, help is on the way

They’ll be no more suffering
