Embrace

You're there in the back of my mind

My heart is troubled, I need to know why.

I can't reach you, my feelings take control.

You take a step closer

And I can't stop myself walking away.

Why am I so ashamed?

You follow me

Down the rocky road

And as my feet become wounded

Your hand reaches out for mine.

Your love for me

Is hard to comprehend

When I always seem to make

The same mistakes over and over again

When I stop in my steps

I turn to face you

You embrace me

And wipe my tears away

I try to say I'm sorry for all I've done

And you silence me with a kiss to my forehead

And you whisper in my ear

"I sent my Son to die for you"
