You are written in a language I don't recognize. Though you fill my life with music, I can't harmonize. All the depth of all the ocean, All the grace of Heaven's motion, You possess, but I've no notion, For your brightest shining barely Penetrates my eyes. I am crudely sketched in pencil, Faded with the years. I am scribbled in the margin, Blurred by private tears. I have joy, and love, and passion, I have beauty in my fashion, But I've drawn a shorter ration Of the means to bring them out from Underneath my fears. I am locked within my prison. Will you set me free? I am lost, confused, and frightened. Will you comfort me? I am here, but I need tending. I need help, and time for mending. If you have the strength for lending, Hold me close and say you love the Person I can be.
