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.

even though i only know you from a distance, i could actually see the AS thing...

this is going to sound weird but i don't care. i feel compelled to tell you. when i listen to my playlist of a couple hundred songs on shuffle, i like to ask God to pick songs. so yesterday i was listening to stuff from my phone (which includes recordings i've made thru my phone) and i asked Him to pick one that He likes the MUSIC to, words aside. "tired of being sorry" by ringside came on and i spent most of the song wondering if God really picked it or if i was just being silly and i finally thought, God is an intimate God. that is apparent in scripture. so if i ask Him to pick songs, i really think He will and the effect is ONLY limited by my lack of faith.

so i asked Him to pick the NEXT one based purely on lyrics, disregard the music. you know what song came on? the one YOU wrote, that i put music to!!! so i think it's safe to say, God really likes the song you wrote. ;)

i just wanted to share that with you. it's rare (i've found) that you get a compliment specifically for you from the Most High. ;)
