This is the reason
That I came here
And suffered
At their hands.
The reason that
I stayed here
And followed
Scriptures road.
This is the passion
That flows in me
The blood and
Sweat and fear.
At times to see no
Other but you
My hope my
Life my fare.
And was I blinded
Eyes scarred to see
Eclipsed from truth
Meant for me?
Fell so far from grace
Another hand
Lost to me
In your eye.
This is the reason
I stayed for you
Love you knew.
The touch, your tear
The one I knew
A kiss of
Death from you.
